Theatre Internships in London

From Shakespeare to Andrew Lloyd Webber, London is the heart and soul of the theatre. There's nowhere quite like it to earn unique, competitive professional theatre experience and work with the best people in the business. Over the years, London has become the global hub for theatre, offering up some of the highest quality theatrical performances in the world! Thanks to top-notch producers, directors, actors and playwrights, London offers world-famous musicals and plays that explore humanity, making audiences laugh, cry and everything in-between.

From pantomimes to dramas, this dynamic city is by far the best place for an international theatre internship. Some of the most celebrated performances in the world took place at Central London's West End. These large, mainstream professional shows in London are staged in a part of the area called “Theatreland”. Some of the West End’s longest-running shows include The Mousetrap, Les Misérables and Phantom of the Opera. The West End is also fun for walking about as it includes several iconic public squares and circuses.

The iconic central London streets will fill you with inspiration for your theatre internship. Talk a walk along Drury Lane, Shaftesbury Avenue and The Strand and take in the gorgeous surroundings of historic and modern theaters. Leicester Square Theatre, the London Palladium, Her Majesty’s Theatre, Southwark Playhouse and the Royal National Theatre are just a number of the famous venues that help make London’s entertainment scene so well known.

Sightseeing in London

Theatre interns in London cannot miss a trip to see St. Paul’s Cathedral - a true London treasure. This Anglican cathedral is the mother church of the London Diocese, the original church dating all the way back to AD 604. The beautiful structure present today was built in the late 17th century and sits atop the Ludgate Hill, London’s highest point. Buckingham Palace is another one of London's most iconic structures. The 830,000 square foot palace originated as a townhouse for the Duke of Buckingham in 1703 and is now home to much of the royal family.

  • Hello,

    I am highly interested in doing a summer internship but being that I am in the U.S at the moment there are a few things that I should find out before I apply. Is it a paid internship or non paid? How long would the program go for/could I do it over the summer? I’m sure there would be a lot more to take into consideration than that so if you think of any other important information that you think I should know, please, share, I’d leave to know everything that I can about the program!
