Be An Intern

As a Forum Theatre intern, you will:

  • work closely with Forum staff, attend company meetings
  • create individual projects that allow you to bring your ideas to the organization
  • have full access to the rehearsal process
  • attend all Forum productions for free

Recent intern classes included MFA graduate students from Catholic University and University of Florida. We are happy to work with your school to create an internship for course credit.

Forum internships are volunteer positions and housing is not provided.
