Professional Fellowships

Observe. Learn. Contribute. Go beyond.

Shakespeare Theatre Company is dedicated to supporting the future generation of theatre practitioners and administrative and management staff. Each season, STC offers approximately 20 fellowship positions ranging in focus from Stage Management and Acting to Development and Education. Our fellows are an integral part of STC’s staff, working alongside renowned designers, actors, artists and administrative staff. STC’s highly-competitive Professional Fellowship program allows young theatre-makers the opportunity to learn from and contribute to the running of the nation’s leading classical theatre.
