We are looking for applicants interested in aiding Chicago Children’s Theatre’s mission to enrich our community through diverse theatrical programming that engages and inspires the child in all of us. All interns must have exceptional interpersonal, organizational, and writing skills along with a working knowledge of Microsoft Office (Word and Excel required; Powerpoint preferred).
