APPLICATIONS FOR 2013
DEADLINE: JUNE 29, 2012
Each year, the Shaw Festival hires two Intern Directors. They look for promising professional directors at a point in their career where an extended residency with a company like the Shaw Festival will be of benefit to their professional development. Applicants should have a good amount of professional experience but will not have had an opportunity to work on a scale of production that is characteristic of the Shaw Festival. The contracts can start as early as mid-February or as late as mid-March and generally runs through September, depending on the production schedule for the particular season. These positions are salaried at an apprentice level, which at The Shaw is around $675 per week.
Applications for the Intern Director positions are made through Theatre Ontario. For a more complete guide to applicants, go to www.theatreontario.org and click on Apply to Shaw Directors Project 2013 under Latest Resources on the home page. There is no application form – just submit a resume with a covering letter, explaining why you would like to be an Intern Director at the Shaw Festival.
