High School Internship Program
High school students from the Sacramento area work and learn along side some of the area's finest artists in the Sacramento Shakespeare Festival Intern Company program. Find out if the Intern Program is right for you or your teen.
Participation in the high school intern program will help build self-confidence, self-esteem, independence and team skills in a non-competitive atmosphere, and give interns an unparalleled experience in Shakespeare performance and production. All interns will be the performers in our Green Show. Interns will also perform a shortened Shakespeare play (TBA) in a showcase performance on the mainstage. Interns will receive instruction and hands-on experience in all areas of theatre production. All interns will participate in workshops including Voice, Movement, Shakespeare, Stage Combat and more. College credit and/or community service hours available.
