Weathervane internship program

Weathervane Intern Company

The Weathervane Theatre Internship Program (WIP) is a total immersion experience of practical theatre arts training and networking. WIPs live, work, learn, and play alongside the professional actors and staff from the Broadway and regional theatre communities and perform in original children’s theatre and Mainstage productions throughout the season. A rigorous schedule, WIPs increase their stamina, performance longevity, and work ethic rehearsing one show during the day while performing another at night. Interns are provided with housing, some meals, and a stipend.

Notable WIP alum: Brittney Johnson and 2018 Tony Award winner Ari’el Stachel.
