Internship Opportunity: Chicago Shakespeare Theater

The Chicago Shakespeare Theater on Navy Pier is searching for a dedicated summer intern! Applications are due March 1st. Read below for more information.

Chicago Shakespeare Theater is currently seeking applicants for part- or full-time internships during the summer of 2020. This internship provides the opportunity to devote a number of weeks to researching a play—its historical and social contexts, its publication and production history, and its critical history—and to develop resources for hundreds of educators who will teach the play over the school year in conjunction with our upcoming productions. Interns will work with Chicago Shakespeare’s editor along with other published writers on in the Education Department—an invaluable experience for building one’s professional writing portfolio or for graduate students considering careers outside of academia. The work leads to an online publication of essays and teaching activities—central components to our handbooks, typically one hundred pages in length. In addition to the research and writing component, education interns are also immersed in the day-to-day work of our department, which is varied as we move through the summer months.

A background in Shakespeare, early modern drama, or performance studies is certainly helpful —but is not a pre-requisite. What is required in a qualified candidate is a passion and acumen for the research process, and for writing accessibly, thoughtfully, and, ideally, creatively within the structure of an expository form. Examples of past Teacher Handbooks are available for perusal on their website.

Candidates are asked to submit samples of writing, along with their cover letter, CV, and letters of recommendation.

Find more information on applying here.

The Cliff Dwellers is a private club for members who are either professionally engaged in literature, painting, music, architecture, sculpture, or one of the allied arts, or who support the fine arts and the performing arts.

The Club, located in the 22nd floor penthouse of the former BorgWarner building at the southwest corner of Michigan Avenue at Adams Street, is next door to Symphony Center and overlooks Millennium Park and the Art Institute of Chicago.
