Students who are cast may be eligible for our Professional Acting Internship Program. Acting Interns perform in 1-2 shows; understudy; receive 50 hours of classical training; are mentored by one of our esteemed company members; earn EMC points towards their AEA union card; receive on-the-job training and experience in a technical, administrative or educational area of theatre; perform classical scenes and monologues in an end of season showcase in our 299-seat outdoor amphitheater. Professional Production Internships are also available for those with a focus in the areas of costuming, sound and lighting, stage management and arts administration and also earn EMC points towards their AEA union card.
The Summer Intensive Shakespeare Seminar, beginning July 6, is a five-week workshop focusing on the techniques essential to performing Shakespeare. It boasts an impressive roster of renowned working professionals teaching classes in Linklater and Fitzmaurice Voice, Speech, Laban and Period Movement, Alexander Technique, Text Analysis, Scansion, Rhetoric, Elizabethan Life and Dance, Fencing and Elizabethan History. Intensive students are also directed in a Shakespeare “job-getting” monologue and scene, which are performed in our 299-seat outdoor amphitheater at the end of the summer. This year marks our 39th year of hosting this acclaimed seminar, and we invite your students to interview. Many schools – including USC, CalArts, Pepperdine, UCLA, Fresno State, Chapman and Claremont – have granted college credit to their students after completion of this 90-hour course.
