About Source Theatre Company

Since its inception in 1977, the Source Theatre Company has been a residence for established and new artists in Washington, D.C. Each season, the company performs new plays, contemporary works and reinterpretations of classical pieces for the D.C. community. Each year, the Source also produces readings, a Junior Festival, a 10-minute play competition and the award-winning Washington Theatre Festival, which has been credited with developing over 70 new plays through workshops. The company received the 1994 Mayor’s Arts Award for Excellence in Service to the Arts and over 30 Helen Hayes Award nominations. The Cultural Development Corporation—a nonprofit devoted to community development through the arts—purchased the Source Theatre Company in 2006.

Interns are responsible for the day-to-day upkeep and operations of the theater, and are given clerical and research assignments by the staff. Duties are determined by various departments and include marketing, box office, stage management, technical work and administrative duties.


Open to high school students, all undergraduates, recent college graduates, grad students and international applicants.
