Berkeley Rep School of Theatre Fellowships in Graphic Design and Marketing
Berkeley Repertory Theatre offers an 11.5-month fellowship program for serious-minded, highly motivated individuals who are ready to embark upon a professional theatre career. The fellowship program includes Graphic Design fellowships and Marketing fellowships. Fellows are directly exposed to the Theatre’s daily operations and given the opportunity to learn alongside an accomplished company of artists, administrators, guest directors and designers.
Applications are due March 10, 2019. For information on the program and applications, see the Professional Fellowships site.
While at Berkeley Rep, fellows are encouraged to fulfill as many career-building goals and objectives as possible, gaining both practical experience and professional contacts through the program. In addition to their specialized training, participants gain additional insight into the art and operations of a professional regional theatre through regularly scheduled seminars led by guest speakers and members of the Theatre’s senior staff. Additionally, all fellows serve as mentors for Berkeley Rep’s annual Teen One-Acts Festival.
Berkeley Rep seeks applicants who have already acquired basic training and experience in their field and are ready for the next step toward a career in professional theatre. Ideal candidates should be willing to engage in the creative process, eager to test the limits of their own ingenuity, and ready to join a professional, artistic community. Our goal is to help our fellows transition successfully from life as a college or university student into the world of theatre professionals.
The fellowship program requires an 11.5-month commitment. Fellows generally begin on July 15 and conclude on June 30. They are given a monthly allowance to help cover expenses, including transportation, and housing is available for all 15 fellows. For their participation in the fellowship program, fellows receive credit from San Jose State University.
Please note: If the fellowship involves driving, the applicant must have an acceptable driving record as approved by our insurance representatives. All fellowships are contingent upon passing a criminal background check.
