NOW PLAYING: A WRINKLE IN TIME
Lifeline internships are designed to provide students and young professionals with a well-rounded experience working at a professional not-for-profit theatre. Our internships cover all areas of management and production, so that interns gain an understanding of what it takes to keep a theatre company running.
The benefits to the intern include working with a team of professionals who care deeply about producing quality theatre adaptations, arts education, and community involvement. The selection of assignments and projects within our various departments will vary depending on the internís interests and the timing of the internship.
A Lifeline intern should exhibit the following qualifications:
Applicants must be current college sophomores, juniors, seniors, or recent graduates.
What Will I Be Doing At Lifeline?
The Lifeline internship encompasses nine different categories pertaining to the daily activities of maintaining a mid-size theatre company. While the staff will do its best to accommodate each intern's particular areas of interest, the goal is to give participants a well-rounded experience by providing tasks and Master Classes in each area. Interns can expect to be working with three or four separate departments on any given day. Some examples are (may vary depending on the quarter/semester):
Interns are also required to assist with one front of house shift per weekend
Past Master Class topics have included:
All internships are unpaid; however, interns will receive complimentary tickets to each Lifeline production. Interns are able to receive class credit through this internship, but housing is not provided.
Working with Lifeline not only gives the intern hands-on experience with a non-profit organization, but also provides him/her the opportunity to live and work in one of the greatest cities in the world. The Chicago culture — from deep dish pizza to a breathtaking lakefront, professional sports, and a vibrant arts scene — gives the Lifeline intern a unique, unforgettable experience that extends beyond their daily internship tasks.
