About Wilma Theater

Established in 1973, the Wilma Theater gets its name from a feminist collective asserting that Shakespeare's sister was named Wilma(!). The theater brings the Philadelphia community performances by the Bread & Puppet Theatre, Mabou Mines, Charles Ludlam's Ridiculous Theatrical Company, The Wooster Group, Ping Chong & the Fiji Company and Spalding Gray. Recent productions include works by Bertolt Brecht, Athol Fugard, Eugene Ionesco, Joe Orton and Tom Stoppard, as well as new American plays by Tina Howe, Romulus Linney, Quincy Long, Doug Wright, Amy Freed and many others.

Internships and fellowships are designed to promote maximum growth for administrative career paths in the arts and theater. Opportunities are available in Wilma Theater's marketing, production, development, special events and education departments.


Open to sophomore, junior and senior undergrads who have completed a minimum of one year of study. Grad students, recent college graduates and career changers currently enrolled in a degree program are also eligible.
