About American Conservatory Theater

The American Conservatory Theater (ACT) aims to renew and reinvent traditional theater and theatrical writing for the modern public, and to create a new community of performers and audiences.  ACT nurtures the art of live theater through vigorous productions.  It does this, in part, by teaching nearly 3,000 aspiring actors annually.  Alumni include Winona Ryder, Annette Bening and Denzel Washington.

ACT places interns in theater production and administration.  All interns get experience working for a large-scale professional theater company, ample opportunity to meet celebrated professionals and an “in” to a professional life in the theater.  Tasks can be largely clerical, but some recent interns have gone on to prominent positions within the organization and without, including placement at Yale University and Broadway, Off-Broadway and regional theaters throughout the United States.


Open to college students, graduates, graduate students and anyone interested in a career in theater.  Non-U.S. citizens are eligible.  Applicants must demonstrate training, skills or experience in the field, and PC and/or Mac computer skills.
