Strawdog Theatre’s internship program offers a rich and challenging experience for qualified college
students and recent college graduates who are preparing for careers in professional theatre. This
program gives interns the opportunity to dive into the world of Chicago’s off-loop theatre scene
through close interaction with Strawdog’s company of artists. The level of responsibility entrusted
to Strawdog interns requires that they be mature, self-reliant, articulate, dynamic and eager to learn
about the different facets of theatre in a very hands-and highly collaborative environment. Intern
applicants should have a basic knowledge of computers.
The Strawdog Intern will work under the supervision of the General Manager. Intern duties will vary
depending on the internship. All internships include administrative duties assigned by the General
Manager. Show-specific internships will have a stronger production focus. This may mean running crew
for a show, assistant stage-managing and/or helping our technical director or production team as
needed. Summer internships will focus more strongly on administrative duties. Most importantly, the
value an individual will reap from this experience will be highly dependent upon his/her motivation
and interest in his/her work. Interns will be expected to work between 10 to 15 hours a week.
A specific schedule will be negotiated between the intern and the general manager. However, please
note that interns should be available to work DURING THE DAY (M-F).
Applications are ongoing unless otherwise noted.
The awarding of academic credit is at the discretion of the intern's college or university.
Upon request, Strawdog will be happy to provide documentation of the intern's activities and
If you have questions about the application procedure, specific internships, or any other
aspect of Strawdog Theatre's internship program, please contact: Patrick Rybarczyk, Strawdog Managing Director
