Internships & Fellowships

Shakespeare Dallas is accepting applications for a new design fellowship program.

The 2023 - 2024 fellowship program is designed to support early to mid-career artists, address an imbalance of representation in professional theater, and increase access to professional experiences for people of color, LGBTQIA+, and woman+ people.

Each fellow will assist on four shows from early stages through final production. They’ll contribute to production meetings, planning, rehearsals, and direct collaboration with the lead production staff and the Artistic Director.

The fellowship will run from March 2023 - January 2024. The full description, including details about our hiring process, compensation, and eligibility can be found here.
