Work with us

To engender an active process and positive change toward race equity in both employment and artistry, Shakespeare & Company is committed to evolving its approach to diversity and inclusion. Our goal is to engage in endeavors that enrich and promote a just society, and we seek to engage those who will embrace our vigorous commitment to inclusion, diversity, equity, and accessibility, as well as anti-racism initiatives.

Join us in our creative endouvours

Shakespeare & Company is committed to the principles of equal employment and to providing equal employment opportunities. It is our intent to maintain an inclusive work environment free of harassment, discrimination, or retaliation on the basis of sex, gender, race, religion, color, national origin, physical or mental disability, genetic information, marital status, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, political affiliation, military service, veteran status, pregnancy, or any other status protected by federal, state, or local laws.

We strongly encourage applications from groups historically underrepresented in theater and theater administration including People of the Global Majority, LGBTQIA+, women, people who are neurodiverse, and people with disabilities.

Committed to safety

Shakespeare & Company is also committed to monitoring and controlling the spread of infectious disease: in most cases, employees will have completed their COVID-19 vaccination regimen, be tested before they start work, and retest weekly. The entire Company adheres to local, state, and union safety protocols where and when appropriate.

Internships at Shakespeare & Company

Interns receive one-on-one mentoring from their department in addition to working with professional artists. Throughout the internship, in a lecture series designed exclusively for interns, staff members from across the company illustrate the inner workings of a large arts organization and its commitment to an identity-conscious environment.

Interns also have opportunities to complete independent capstone projects within their departments and receive career guidance with performance evaluations and resume and portfolio reviews. Internships are typically 12- to 16 weeks in duration, but if one of the tracks listed below is not perfect for an applicant, programs of custom duration or areas of interest may be developed.

Audition for our productions

Shakespeare & Company holds auditions annually in February or March each year. Please check this page for updates regarding audition dates and times.
