About Arena Stage

Producing performances since the 1950s, Arena Stage has many “firsts” to its name.  It was one of the firstnonprofittheaters in the United States, the first regional theater to transfer a play to Broadway and the first regional theater to win a Tony Award.  Arena Stage premieres new plays every season, actively supports works-in-progress and boasts an annual audience of 250,000.

Internships and fellowships are offered at Arena Stage in arts administration, artistic and technical production and community engagement.  Interns focus on one specialty within an area, such as marketing, development, directing, casting, costumes, sound or education and work with experienced professionals on the productions during the internship period.  Many interns are offered full-time positions after the completion of their internship.


Open to college students, recent grads and graduate students, as well as career-changers.  Non-U.S. citizens are eligible if they can provide their own work visa.
