SBTS seeks a Tour Intern

This is an excellent opportunity for an intern to get hands-on experience in the administration and production of a live touring festival that has become a cherished annual event in Los Angeles County. From implementing a marketing plan, working alongside production and artistic personnel, coordinating earned income strategies, and interacting with a large audience and donors, while experiencing a diversity of tour locations throughout LA County, this internship offers a behind-the-scenes entrée into producing theatre. This position will work approximately 30 hours a week from June – September with some ability to extend hours (remotely or in person) through the fall and winter.


Meticulous attention to detail, great attitude, enthusiasm for the arts, strong organizational and administrative skills, great phone etiquette, computer savvy, ability to work in high-pressure, deadline-driven situations, strong written and verbal communication skills, ability to work evenings as well as days, ability to lift 50 lbs, ability to follow-through, and a team player. The Intern will need to provide their own car for transportation to and from the office workspace in the South Bay of LA and the performance tour venues that are throughout LA and Orange Counties.

Internship Duration: (Flexible period) June 2024 – September 2024, approximately 30 hours per week.

Wages: The Intern will be employed at $16.90/ hr for a required 400 hours of work, increasing to $17.27 on July 1. 

SBTS is most interested in hearing from diverse local Community College Students as this proposal provides a valuable opportunity to gain a  deeper experience in theatre-making beyond just the summer months.  Other candidates may apply as well.

Interested College applicants can submit their resumes and cover letter to Managing Director and  Co-Artistic Directors at pad@shakespearebythesea.org

An Intern will be selected by May 15.
