Berkshire Theatre Group has been training theatre professionals since 1929.  We are committed to offering a rigorous and intensive program to individuals interested in pursuing professional careers in all aspects of theatre.  At BTG, interested acting students will find rigorous performance based programs.  Interns may participate in several programs throughout the year. 

Summer Acting Internship Program

This 11-week program begins at the start of the theatre's summer festival, with classroom and stage experience included. Our goal is to provide an atmosphere in a professional environment in which participants are not only learning in class and tutorial settings, but are performing on stage and meeting some of the country's most esteemed theatre artists.

All participants perform in one of our summer productions and each emerging actor is mentored and supported in a welcoming, disciplined and exciting program of exploration.

The selection process is rigorous and limited in numbers so that we may give the greatest opportunities and attention to our acting interns.
