Each season, the Shaw Festival hires two Intern Directors. They look for promising professional directors at a point in their career where an extended residency with a company like the Shaw Festival will be of benefit to their professional development. Applicants should have a good amount of professional experience but will not have had an opportunity to work on the scale of production that is characteristic of the Shaw Festival.
The choice of the two Intern Directors for 2014 is expected to be announced by the end of September.
Since its inception in 1988, the project has been sponsored annually by Sun Life Financial and Theatre Ontario.
