Delaware Shakespeare offers summer internships for high school actors who are interested in learning more about Shakespeare and being a part of a wonderful Delaware summer tradition. This is an incredible opportunity to be a part of our Summer Festival, getting an inside view of a professional theatre company working on one of the greatest plays ever written.
High school interns serve as Wandering Bards, entertaining audience members during the pre-show picnic period.
All high school interns are asked to:
- Create and perform improv-based Shakespeare entertainments that are part of the pre-show Festival activities (1-2 times a week)
- Volunteer at least one other time a week during the three weeks of the Summer Festival
- Rehearsals are in June and July. Summer Festival runs July 15-31, 2022.
Interns will be required to follow company COVID safety procedures, possibly including daily health surveys, masking, and testing.
