Internships are designed to provide students professional development opportunities working within our artistic and production areas. Interns will work with a SD Rep staff member and receive mentorship in their respective discipline.

Testimonials from former interns:

“The internship in the Literary Department was one of the most valuable experiences I had during my work on my M.A. in Theatre Arts at San Diego State University. I had opportunities to research and develop audience engagement materials for current productions at the REP and make real contributions toward the development of the REP’s upcoming seasons. The whole team at this top San Diego theatre were fantastic. I was treated like an equal collaborator, a real member of the artistic team.” – Joel Castellaw (former intern)

“At any one time, the REP has several young interns working in their Development, Marketing, Production, and Artistic departments. When I approached the REP for an internship, they designed a cross-departmental experience that would be most fulfilling for me. This personalized touch indicated a care and hospitality at the REP's core. It has been my pleasure and good fortune to work here—a fantastic introduction to professional theatre.” – Kayla Cohen (former intern)

Internships may fulfill academic requirements, which would be determined by the respective applicant’s academic institution if applicable. Internships are unpaid learning opportunities.  Prior theatre experience, while helpful, is not required.
