Professional Fellowships, Shakespeare Theatre Company

We will accept applications for our SUMMER TEACHING ARTIST TRAINING PROGRAM from February 7–April 7, 2023.

PROFESSIONAL FELLOWSHIPS are suspended for the 22/23 Season. STC is committed to reinstating this vital program in a future season. We appreciate your patience as we take the necessary steps to ensure future fellows have a high-quality educational, equitable experience with us.

Shakespeare Theatre Company is dedicated to supporting the next generation of theatre practitioners, administrators, and leaders. Fellowship positions are an integral part of the company, working alongside renowned artists and accomplished administrative staff at the center of D.C.’s dynamic theatre community and vibrant artistic scene. STC’s highly competitive Professional Fellowship program allows early career theatre-makers the opportunity to learn from and contribute to the running of the nation’s leading classical theatre.

Fellowships are made possible in part by Michael and Maureen McMurphy, in memory of Patrick McMurphy.
