Internships

The American Repertory Theater offers a variety of internship opportunities across departments at the theater.

Internships are directed toward undergraduate and graduate age individuals. College credit is available for certain internships through the intern’s sponsoring institution.

Dates are flexible based on the applicant's academic commitments, but typically internships run for one semester according to the following schedule:

  • Fall (September - December)
  • Spring (January - April)
  • Summer (May - August)

Please note that the A.R.T. does not offer acting, directing, voice or movement internships. Foreign nationals are eligible, but you must provide your own visas. Neither the A.R.T. nor Harvard can act as a visa sponsor. All A.R.T. internships are unpaid.

Questions may be directed to internship_app@amrep.org.

Volunteer

The American Repertory Theater welcomes you to be a part of an exciting theater community! Volunteer Ushers get a glimpse behind the scenes and work closely with the Front of House operations. Under the supervision of the House Manager and working with the Front of House Staff, volunteers are assigned duties that might include distributing programs, providing information about the show, scanning patrons’ tickets at the door, light clean up after the performance, and completing other tasks during and after the show. Volunteers must wear white tops and black slacks or skirts; no jeans, t-shirts or sneakers. Arrival time is normally 90 minutes before the performance but this may vary depending on the production.

 
Volunteer Ushers will be able to see the performance free of charge but may have to join Standing Room Only if the show is sold-out. Volunteer Ushering is only available for shows at the Loeb Drama Center, the A.R.T.’s main performance space on Brattle Street. For information on current and upcoming volunteer opportunities, please click here and complete the request form if available. 
 

We look forward to seeing you at the American Repertory Theater.
