Professional Internships

Tennessee Repertory Theatre’s Internship Program is designed to offer hands-on professional experience to students, graduates, and early career professionals who are pursuing a career in theatre. Interns are offered the opportunity to gain practical knowledge while working with experienced professionals in theatre arts and administration. We strive to offer a program that helps each intern accomplish steps towards their career goals, while also allowing them to observe and experience the general day-to-day workings of a professional regional theatre.

Professional Internship Job Descriptions

Student Internships

Student Internships are available for college students, and in some cases high school students, and offer a part-time flexible schedule. Internships are unpaid, and no housing is provided. For Student Internships we will work with each individual to set a schedule that will benefit both the intern’s and the theatre’s needs. While there are minimum time commitments for every job, the actual schedule varies according to each job assignment. Even though we strive to be flexible, some jobs have a set schedule requirement due to the nature of Tennessee Rep’s production schedule. If you are a student seeking class credit, we will work with your educational institution to help you meet all the necessary requirements to do so. Because all institutions vary, we will approach all cases on an individual basis.
