Open to undergraduate, graduate students and early career theatre professionals, our program offers a deep understanding of the hard work and skills required to be successful in the world of theater.

Much love to our 2020 intern Maren Taylor, who did amazing work with us, courtesy of our partnership with Chicago Semester!
