Stage Management in Chicago

Goodman Theatre’s internship program offers a rich and challenging experience for qualified college students, graduates, and young professionals who are actively pursuing careers in professional theater. Goodman interns are entrusted with a great deal of responsibility and have the opportunity to work closely with Goodman staff and artists in Chicago’s large and diverse theater community. Stage Management interns assist Equity stage management throughout the production process beginning with pre-rehearsal preparations, through technical rehearsals, and concluding on opening night. Applicants must demonstrate a thorough knowledge of stage management techniques and terminology. Stage Management interns are eligible to receive Equity membership points.
