Delaware Shakespeare Festival

High School Internships

DSF offers internships for high school actors who are interested in learning more about Shakespeare and being a part of a wonderful Delaware summer tradition. This is an incredible opportunity to get an inside view of a professional theatre company working on some of the greatest plays ever written.


High school interns understudy the roles in the summer festival production played by DSF College Apprentices. If schedules permit, interns are welcome to attend the three master classes offered to the Apprentice Company. All rehearsals for the summer production are open to interns to attend and observe.


High school interns are asked to:

  • Attend 2-3 rehearsals a week for Hamlet (June 8-July 10)
  • Memorize the lines and learn the blocking for their assigned understudy role, having the part prepared by opening night (July 11)
  • Volunteer at least once a week during the three weeks of the summer festival (July 11-July 27)
  • Be able to get to Rockwood Park within thirty minutes in case they are needed to perform their assigned understudy role (July 11-27)
  • Assist in the distribution of promotional materials
