All members of the Directing Corps assist professional directors on the Main and Nikos Stages and also have the opportunity to direct their own projects with casts from the actor training companies at WTF. Directing Interns work with the Apprentices; Assistants work with the Non-Equity Company. Directing Fellows work with the Non-Equity Company and direct one of the LeapFROG Non-Equity Company productions.
The Directing Internship is the unique, entry-level training program for young directors at WTF. Directing Interns assist a renowned professional director on one of the Nikos stage productions and also directs members of the Apprentice Company in projects presented to the Festival and local communities, focusing primarily on the process of working with actors to create theatre as opposed to the full production process itself. Directing Interns are generally recent graduates from undergraduate theater programs and have solid experience both directing their peers and assisting seasoned professionals. Directing Interns are responsible for their own daily living expenses and pay a fee for housing on the Williams College campus.
