Rubicon Young Professionals
                Intern and Apprentice Program


The Rubicon Young Professionals Intern and Apprentice Program offers a rich and challenging experience for qualified high school, college students, graduates and young professionals who are actively pursuing careers in professional theater. An internship/apprenticeship is a great way to prepare oneself for the future with on-the-job training in a highly skilled career.

Rubicon is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) professional theatre company with around 15 full-time employees and 5 part-time employees on its staff. Throughout the year there are opportunities for students to learn the craft of theatre in various areas of study including production (costuming, sound, lighting, scenic design and prop design), stage management, directing, producing, theatre administration, theatre education, development, marketing, publicity and sales.

Interns and apprentices are trained by theatre professionals who share their skills and knowledge in order to help the aspiring theatre artist become an expert too.

In addition to hands-on training under the supervision of a theatre professional, an apprentice receives training through workshops and classes to make sure they master all aspects of the job.
