The artistic internship program provides an opportunity for emerging artists to expand their skills and experience through observing and participating in the creation of an original professional theatre production.
Theatre Gargantua is seeking two emerging artists who are serious and committed to pursuing a career in the performing arts. Our paid mentorship program is designed to provide an opportunity for emerging artists to expand their skills and experience through observing and participating in Theatre Gargantua’s creation cycle. Specifically, participants will attend all rehearsal and creative meetings while simultaneously assisting in areas of production (e.g. set, lighting, costumes, stage management, and director assistance). Through this program, interns are mentored by our professional artists, helping them develop new skills for their future artistic endeavours.
The program will begin in June and continue through performances of the premiere of our latest cycle of work at Theatre Passe Muraille this fall. This position is full time during rehearsals and production (approximately 1 week in June and 8 weeks in the fall) with some additional commitments in between, including weekly meetings. There is also the opportunity to assist with our SideStream Cycle.
Successful applicants will have a background in theatre and an interest in multi-disciplinary work and/or the collaborative creation process. Applicants should be prepared to make a commitment to the full length of the project, including attendance at all rehearsals and performances and all creative meetings.
Please send a resume and cover letter detailing your interest in the program and the company as it relates to your future career aspirations to firstname.lastname@example.org citing “Artistic Internship” in the subject line (no phone calls please).
The deadline to submit applications is Friday May 31nd at 5pm. Interviews will be held the first week of June.
