Huntington Theatre Company
The Huntington Theatre Company has served as the professional theatre in residence at Boston University since 1982. Regarded as Boston's leading professional theatre, the company mounts seven mainstage productions each season, attracting performers and other artists from around the world. The upcoming season marks the Huntington's 25th anniversary.

The Huntington richly supplements the School's Theatre training. The company operates under an Actors' Equity contract and has a professional artistic and support staff of fifty people. The company shares the Boston University Theatre stage, the new Calderwood Pavilion at the Boston Center for the Arts, scene and costume shops, and equipment with the School of Theatre, and the productions of both organizations alternate in repertory.

A cooperative schedule offers students a unique opportunity to observe the workings of a topflight professional theatre company while they rehearse and build their own productions with equivalent technical expertise, aesthetic sensibility, and critical expectations.

The relationship between the School of Theatre and the Huntington provides students with an exceptional range of participation in professional work. In addition to performance opportunities, a variety of assistant positions are offered throughout each season in costume, lighting, scenic design, directing, stage management, production, and business administration.
