Our internships are designed to provide experience and preparation for beginning a career in the professional theater. Interns work closely with members of MTC's artistic and administrative staff, attending departmental meetings, interacting with patrons and taking on real responsibilities in connection with MTC's programs and productions. In addition, interns participate in special workshops and seminars and attend theatrical performances around the Bay Area.
Internships are offered for a full season (August through June), for a single production or for an academic quarter, semester or year. Summer Internships (to be announced soon for 2013) are for college students and older; high school students, please see our Teen Apprenticeships. All internships are unpaid and tuition-free, and require a commitment of at least 10 hours per week. MTC does not provide housing or transportation. MTC is happy to work with academic institutions to arrange for academic credit.

Stage Management and Casting – "I've had a number of theater related internships and jobs throughout college. This, by far, has been the best experience I've had, hands down... It was really, really cool actually being given a real responsibility as an intern, I got to figure things out myself and actually contribute to a show... I felt like I was really needed... This internship has a great balance between observing and doing, which is what I said I was looking for when I applied. It's an experience I could never get in a classroom.”
Casting and Directing – "MTC, for me, is a very special place. It’s a professional theater that made a 16-year-old kid think he was cool [through membership on the Teen Board] and a 19-year-old kid think he could actually make it [through the internship program]. That’s a rare thing to find... They are a welcoming group of people who still remember what it’s like to want to do theater and still remember the most important thing about theater: that it is first and foremost about the people. I couldn’t have asked for a better environment to start acclimating to the professional world."
