Washington Ensemble Theatre Internship Program

Our Internship Program gives participants hands-on experience at one of Seattle’s boldest theatre companies. Washington Ensemble Theatre (WET) often hires recent college graduates both as artists and administrators, and this is an excellent way to get acquainted with our work and company. Interns are mentored by WET staff members to help them increase their skills in their given areas and get practical experience in the theatre as a whole. WET is searching for reliable, self-motivated, committed people who have desire to learn more about the administrative needs of a mid-level Seattle theatre.

We accept applications on a rolling basis for our program, and will update this page with opportunities throughout the year. Credit may be able to be offered through certain university programs and will need to be figured out on a case by case basis.
