The 2022 Internship Program

The Bay Street Summer 2022 Internship Program is no longer accepting submissions.

The Summer Internship Program runs from May 23–August 28, 2022.  For production/technical interns, priority consideration is given to those who are available for extended weeks from

May 16–September 4, 2022.

All interns are expected to be available for the duration of the program. Evening and weekend work required. Shared housing will be provided within close proximity to the theater; however, a vehicle is recommended. Along with free housing, interns also receive a $200 weekly stipend and invaluable professional experience.

Get first-hand experience in the inner workings of a dynamic, professional theater, garnering invaluable skills in the various aspects of technical and artistic production, as well as arts administration. By actively working with trade professionals throughout the rigorously scheduled production process and professional development workshops, interns directly explore their own suitability to the demands and rewards of a life in the theater.  The summertime mainstage season features the mounting of 3-4 full theatrical productions, weekly comedy events and musical concerts, the Bay Street Under the Stars annual outdoor production, arts education workshops and camps for children, the annual Gala fundraiser, and many more events and performances.

In addition to this invaluable career experience, the 2022 Summer Internship Program will culminate in a production that runs for a limited number of performances in August that is directed, performed, designed, marketed, and organized collaboratively by the entire intern team!

Positions available include: 

  • Acting Apprentice
  • Directing/Producing Apprentice
  • Costume Intern
  • Lighting Intern
  • Carpentry Intern
  • Props Intern
  • Scenic Artist Intern
  • Development & Hospitality Intern
  • Education Intern

In 2018, Bay Street launched a new Acting Initiative, now called the Michael Downing Acting Apprenticeship Program, which added four Acting Apprentice Interns to Bay Street’s summer program.  Now in its third year, all interns participate in a production that runs for a limited number of public, ticketed performances in August to be directed, performed, designed, and run by the intern population under the supervision of the Artistic Director, Scott Schwartz, Associate Artistic Director, Will Pomerantz and Technical Department Heads.
