Save the Date: Going Pro Career Fair
Date: Saturday, April 17, 2021
We are excited to announce our sixth annual Going Pro Career Fair will be a fully-virtual event this year. We’ll be using a platform called Hopin that mimics an in-person conference experience, and plan to have many of the elements of past Going Pro events, including one-on-one mentorship, panel discussions and workshops, and opportunities to network with union representatives and employers. The event will be free to current college & university students, and we’re working on opening up access to early-career individuals and alumni as well.

Virtual Theater Education Resources
Just a reminder that we have twenty separate Working in Theater webinars from summer and fall, on topics ranging from Making Money So You Can Make Art to Branding, Self-Marketing and Entrepreneurship. We also have recordings of our Theater Artist Classroom Connections series with theater artists such as Phylicia Rashad, Keith David, Dael Orlandersmith, Sir Matthew Bourne and Sabina Zúñiga Varela in conversation with local students, with downloadable companion materials coming soon. Our Working in Theater portal has many more resources, including a Classroom Materials section. 

Internships/Apprenticeships Remain on Pause
At this time, our Internship and Apprenticeship Programs will remain on pause through the summer. We hope to return to these programs next year, and miss working with so many of your talented students and early-career individuals.


  • Internships will be posted on our website on a rolling basis until January of 2021. We have designed a new protocol for our grantees that will enable them to notify us two weeks from when they’d like to start interviewing. This gives crucial planning time and move to hire an intern when they are ready. Students should check our website: in the coming weeks for the most up to date information, especially once the "Safer at Home" ordinance is lifted.
  • Interns will have more flexibility in their work schedules. We anticipate that many organizations will need to go less than full time with their interns, so we have amended language that would allow for interns to work as few as 15 hours a week.
  • Clear communication about scheduling will be critically important. As the timeline has been expanded, many interns will need to return to school while completing their internship hours. Students should be prepared to clearly communicate, to the best of their ability, what their other commitments will look like as they overlap with their internship. Given the flexibility, our hope is that organizations will be ready to accommodate students who are going back to school, have other jobs, etc.
