4.12.9 Professional Theatre Internship
Introduction

Qualified students in Drama may apply to be placed in internship positions with local professional theatre organizations. Students may be accepted as interns in areas such as Acting, Design, Stage Management, Playwriting, Dramaturgy, Theatre Administration, and Directing. Students uncertain as to their specific career goal may be accepted as General Interns. Students accepted as interns become full-time members of a professional theatre company and are expected to devote themselves full-time to this activity. Interns are paid a monthly salary by their theatre company for the duration of the eight-month internship.

Students who are selected for the internship enrol in Internship 591.01 Professional Theatre Internship I and Internship 591.02 Professional Theatre Internship II in the Fall and Winter Terms respectively.

Application

To be eligible for consideration, applicants must be registered in the BFA Drama program and have completed 90 units before participating in the internship. Applications for the internship are due to Drama’s internship supervisor in February. See Drama’s website for more information: arts.ucalgary.ca/creative-performing-arts/future-students/undergraduate-drama.
