About Face Theatre is a small professional organization with four full-time and two part-time staff members. Every year, we produce four mainstage shows and three workshops. We rely on support from a dedicated group of interns to produce our season of queer theatre and make sure our company runs smoothly.
Internships are fun, flexible opportunities for theatre-lovers of all ages to learn all about what goes into developing and performing works that support AFT’s mission to create exceptional, innovative, and adventurous plays to advance the national dialogue on gender and sexual identity, and to challenge and entertain audiences in Chicago, across the country, and around the world. Internships are structured, mentored, full of leadership opportunities, and built to prepare young artists and administrators for meaningful careers in the arts.
We work hard to include interns in all aspects of the organization and to create opportunities for professional development. Interns will be provided a proactive learning environment, substantial resume-building responsibilities, and networking opportunities in the Chicago theatre industry. Applications are accepted on an ongoing basis.
