The Fellowship program is for theater administrators looking to transition into the professional world after graduation. This entry level position is considered a part of the core staff of theater professionals and works closely with all departments of the organization.

The Artistic Fellowship for our 2022-23 Season is filled. Applications for the Artistic Fellowship will reopen in Spring 2023.
