In order to further the development of the next generation of American stage managers, the Tony Award-winning Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park supports one of the nation's most respected internship programs. The program is named in honor of Bruce E. Coyle, a production stage manager and essential member of the Playhouse family for more than 20 years.
*Due to the pandemic, there are no stage management interns for the 2020-21 season. Please check back in the future for information about 2021-22 season opportunities.
The Playhouse accepts applications between January and March each year for stage management interns in the upcoming season, which generally begin in the fall. Contracts are for the entire production season but vary from the end of July through early June. Interns work with AEA stage managers to prepare for and run rehearsals and performances. A weekly salary, but no housing, is provided. EMC points are available for some assignments. Candidates must have good knowledge of stage management techniques and rehearsal/performance processes and have a positive work attitude. A degree in stage management is preferable. To apply, send a cover letter, resume and three letters of recommendation or references (with email addresses) to Andrea.Shell@cincyplay.com or send by mail to:

The Playhouse's Bruce E. Coyle Acting Internship Program is committed to fostering the development of emerging actors in order to help them create a solid foundation on which to build a sustainable career as an artist. The acting internship supports young artists as they learn to acclimate to the world of professional theatre and the approach necessary when choosing to make acting a job versus an enrichment experience.
*Due to the pandemic, there are no acting interns in the 2020-21 season. Please check back in the future for information about 2021-22 season opportunities.
