About the position:
Thou Art Here Theatre is looking for two continuing or graduating theatre students to be Performance Interns for the Freewill Shakespeare Festival. Performance interns will rehearse and perform our Shakespearean Puppet shows that are presented to the public before the mainstage performance. We are looking for performers who want to practice classical acting, puppetry, musicality, and improvisation, while learning Thou Art Here’s unique style of adapting Shakespearean text into 15-minute, accessible, and family-friendly puppet shows!
