About Freedom Theatre

Founded in 1966, the Freedom Theatre is the oldest African-American theater in Pennsylvania. The renowned Freedom Repertory Theatre Company stages four productions each year and recently moved into a brand-new, state-of-the-art facility. The theater performs a variety of works that showcase the African-American experience, including dramas, comedies and musicals. Freedom Theatre also offers the Performing Arts Training Program. This program educates children and adults in acting, dance and vocal arts.

The Freedom Theatre offers an individualized internship program that is tailored to the interests and abilities of each person. Opportunities exist for internships on both the creative and business sides. Placements are available in production, directing, acting, marketing and development. All interns will receive support and guidance from a designated mentor.
