Applications for the 2019-2020 season will open in December 2018/January 2019.
Do you offer “January Term” or Interterm internships?
No. All of our internships and apprenticeships will take place for 25-30 weeks during our full season (August – May).
Are there acting internships?
No, we do not offer acting internship opportunities.
I’m not available for part of the standard 30-week contract period, can I still do an internship?
Starting dates may vary from internship to internship and depending on the season, so please
ask about the timeline for a specific internship if this is a concern. But generally, intern
contracts are for the full 30-week season.
Can I talk to current interns about their experiences at the Rep?
Will I be able to have a second, part-time job?
Yes, email PATP@seattlerep.org
and we can put you in touch with one or two of this year’s interns. Don’t worry
if you don’t get an immediate response—it just means we’re busy!
Maybe. Work schedules are different depending on the type of internship. A few of the
positions have fairly regular work hours that do allow for evening jobs, but others,
like Lighting Design, have shifting schedules that differ according to a play’s
Should I expect to receive a confirmation that Seattle Rep received my application?
Yes, you will receive an email confirming receipt of your application.
When should I expect to hear back about my application?

Can I get academic credit for this internship?
If interns wish to receive academic credit for their internship it is the intern's responsibility
to make arrangements with the sponsoring institution. Academic credit is up to the discretion of the intern's college or university. Seattle Rep will
provide the sponsoring institution any necessary reports or evaluations.
I don’t see an answer to my question. Who do I contact?
