Interning at Penobscot Theatre

Penobscot Theatre is committed to the continuing education and training of our young members. We are now offering intensive job-shadowing summer internships for college age students seriously interested in a career in theatre.


Through collaboration with directors, administrators, designers, teaching artists, and professional production teams interns gain hands on training and cultivate lasting relationships with other artists. Interns should be highly motivated individuals with a desire to learn and accept new challenges. Penobscot Theatre Company's Internship Program affords young artists the opportunity to see their work contribute to our main stage productions, network with industry professionals, and gain a greater understanding of multiple facets of theater as both an art form and a business. Members of the internship program become a vital part of the team here at PTC and many have gone on to have successful professional careers in the arts.
