StageSource is a non-profit organization that has been serving thousands of individual theatre artists and hundreds of organizations for over 30 years.  Our office is located in Fort Point, and is T accessible. We share office space with three other service organizations: Arts & Business Council, MASSCreative, and MassPoetry.

Due to COVID-19, we are offering flexible internships that may take place in-person, remotely, or a combination of the two.

StageSource Internships are a wonderful opportunity for students to have high impact on the organization itself while exploring the Boston theater community.  

We have three primary internships available, in administration/membership, programming, and marketing/communications. While general descriptions are given below, please note that we like to tailor our internships to each individual. We invite you to look through our mission, services, resources, and sector improvement initiatives to find what speaks to you and your goals.
