Marin Shakespeare Company - Hey nonny nonny and wild Shakespeare!--Pacific Sun

Intern & Masters Programs 2015

Interns can participate in professional Shakespearean theatre

Actor Training Intern Program
Marin Shakespeare Company's Intern Program is an opportunity to study and perform as a part of a professional summer theatre company.

The program includes six weeks of classes in skills such as: Shakespearean Acting, Audition, Stage Combat and Movement. Classes vary each summer and are taught by members of the professional company including Artistic Director Robert Currier. In addition, Interns have numerous opportunities to perform, work backstage, and teach.

Classes: June 9 - July 24, Tuesdays - Fridays from 1:00 to 5:00 pm
Rehearsals: Additional evenings and weekends.

Cymbeline: June 26 - July 26

Don Quixote: July 31 - August 30

Richard III: September 4 - 27

All Interns will be offered ensemble casting in at least one mainstage play and may gain Equity Membership Candidate (EMC) points. In addition, Interns will perform a Showcase of scenes, monologues and stage combat work from the summer classes. Your casting will depend on your available dates, as well as the needs of each production. For Interns who wish to gain experience teaching Shakespeare to youth, there are opportunities to assist at summer Shakespeare camps for youth.

An audition in person or by video is strongly recommended to assure yourself the best possible casting opportunity. Some schools have programs which allow interns to be paid through their college or university for work done in conjunction with the Intern Program. We generally accept 8 to 12 Intern students each summer

Housing is not provided; however in the past we have been able to provide housing as a portion of a scholarship award to one or more Interns per summer. San Rafael is very close to San Francisco so any of the surrounding counties (Sonoma, San Francisco, Contra Costa) are just a short drive to San Rafael.

The fee for the Intern Program is $950, which does not include housing, transportation or personal expenses. Please see the scholarship information attached.

The EMC, or Equity Membership Candidacy program, is offered by Actor's Equity Association. All Interns may join the EMC program if they wish. EMC members gain points, or weeks, towards eligibility to join Actor's Equity Association.
