Administrative internships are supported by the Kemper Foundation’s New Kemper Arts Fellows program. Court Theatre is one of six Chicago-area arts organizations that receive this funding. Interns work in the areas of general management, development, marketing & communications, casting, and special events (Gala planning). Twelve Kemper fellows are selected each year to work three to five weeks during a 10-week academic quarter. Descriptions of the internships are available on the Court Theatre website.
Production internships are supported by the Metcalf program, which is administered through Career Advising and Planning Services (CAPS). Court offer Metcalfs in directing, stage management, dramaturgy, and design. These internships are staggered, with two positions open in the spring and fall for the theater’s six-week production process.
Court also hires work-study eligible students to work in its Casting, Education, Development, Finance, and Marketing offices throughout the year.
