Court Theatre is now accepting applications for our 2012/13 Kemper Interns!
Court Theatre is thrilled to participate in a program dedicated to providing hands-on experience in arts management and non-profit leadership to students of all backgrounds. The goal of the Fellowship is to help educate the next generation of arts leaders and to promote diversity of education, experience, and ethnic and economic background in the field. Court Theatre joins Hubbard Street Dance Chicago, Pegasus Players, the Ragdale Foundation, Chicago Chamber Musicians, and Silk Road Theatre Project in this effort. For more information on the James S. Kemper Foundation, visit www.jskemper.org. The internship experience consists of quarter-long positions in various administrative departments. Applicants are strongly encouraged to apply to two different departments and consider the experience a two-quarter commitment.
Internships opportunities at Court Theatre for 2012/2013 season include:
- Development (Fall, Winter, Spring)
- General Management (Spring)
- Grant Writing (Fall, Winter)
- Marketing (Fall, Winter, Spring)
- Website and Online Marketing (Winter, Spring)

Responsibilities and Opportunities: We expect that each University of Chicago student will bring to their internship a willingness to learn and a desire to contribute to Court Theatre’s artistry and goals. All internships will offer practical experience as well as an opportunity to attend select rehearsals, performances, production, staff and committee meetings, as well as special events. Student interns will be expected to organize their time well, communicate efficiently and appropriately with others, respond to the timely requests of their supervisors, and present themselves in a professional and focused manner at all Court activities.
Compensation: Due to the generous support of the James S. Kemper Foundation, Court Theatre is able to provide student interns a stipend of $1,000 per quarter for 100 hours of work.
Duration and Commitment: administrative internships are available for roughly nine weeks during Fall, Winter, and Spring Quarters. Individual intern schedules consist of eleven hours a week starting the second week of classes. Students must be able to schedule eleven hours per week within Court’s business hours of 9-5.
