Careers at The Shaw - Shaw Festival Theatre

Careers at
The Shaw
Directors Project

As part of the Slaight Family Academy, we employ two intern directors at The Shaw. These early to mid-career directors will be invited to participate, either from within the Ensemble or through personal invitation to those with whom we have a professional relationship and/or working knowledge. There will no longer be an open submission process.

The intern directors have access to pre-production training, and ongoing training “gymnasia” with resident lighting, set, and costume designers, as well as with visiting master directors. They direct performances of the Secret Theatre during the season, as well as participating in various aspects of education and outreach at the Shaw. Their final contribution is a late season showcase, The Neil Munro Intern Directors Project, in which they each direct a one act play chosen in conversation with the Artistic Director and the Associate Artistic Director.
