Fellowship to a USA BIPOC individual to build experience working in a professional theater. Eligible applicants are early- or mid-career directors. The fellow will receive a salary and benefits as well as the opportunity to expand their administrative and artistic experience. The fellowship will take place over two years in San Diego, California.

La Jolla Playhouse is excited to announce that applications are now open for two new fellowship positions. La Jolla Playhouse is committed to growing the next generation of BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) theatre-makers. These Fellowship opportunities are among numerous commitments outlined in La Jolla Playhouse's Anti-Racism Action Plan through which the Playhouse strives to reshape the organization and make a meaningful contribution to the national theatre landscape.

BIPOC Directing Fellow

La Jolla Playhouse’s BIPOC Director Fellowship is a newly-created, two-year Artistic Department position with full salary and benefits. It provides both artistic and administrative experience, and is intended for early- or mid-career directors whose professional aspirations may include leading a theatre and/or developing new work.

In addition to being fully embedded in the Playhouse’s Artistic Department, the fellow’s time at the Playhouse will culminate with a directing slot in the subscription season of their second year or the year following their fellowship.
