Internship List

A Younger Theatre has a new website which can be found at – this blog will no longer be updated!

We’ve compiled a list of all the internships which are regularly available, there might be other internships available so do always look beyond this list. By clicking on the web address listed you will be taken to the web page listing the internships and relevant information.
