Center Theatre Group Internship Program
Frequently Asked Questions
I’m interested in interning in a department not listed online. Are opportunities available?
No, not this semester. Each semester we offer different internships in a variety of departments. Please check back in spring.
My friend got an internship a few years ago without applying. Does that still happen?
No. In the interest of fairness and equal access, all Center Theatre Group internships are now run through this open application process.
Are internships paid? Can I get school credit for a CTG internship?
All of our interns are compensated, either through college/university credit or via a stipend. When you apply, please indicate which you would prefer to receive. Stipends are based on hours per week worked, and range from $500 per term for undergraduates to $1,000/month for graduate students interning for up to 40 hours/week. Once the internship is secured, it is the responsibility of the intern to register for an internship course and inform his/her supervisor of any requirements or paperwork.
Do you offer acting/design/stage management/directing/producing/artistic direction internships?
No, not at this time.
When do internships start/end? What if I only have one afternoon available?
Fall 2012 internships will start by September 10 and will end by December 21. Center Theatre Group interns commit to a minimum of ten hours per week (two days). Some internships require more than this; please see the Internship Descriptions for details. Please do not apply if you do not have ample time to give to this program.
Can I send you my resume and be considered for all of the positions?
We advise you to choose one position that greatly interests you and submit a thoughtful cover letter that expresses why you feel you would be a good fit. If two positions appeal to you, you can submit two separate cover letters and we will see to it that each is considered separately.
I’m in high school/under age 18. May I apply?
Unfortunately, no. We do not offer any internships for high school students and/or people under the age of 18. We encourage you to explore our Student Body programs.
I’m of college age, but am not currently enrolled in a college or university. May I apply?
We do consider applications from people not currently enrolled in school. Please call Camille Schenkkan at (213) 972-8031 or email cschenkkan@CenterTheatreGroup.org to discuss.
I’m an educator and would like to get hard-copy materials for students and/or be put on your mailing list to hear about internship opportunities.
We are happy to provide hard-copy applications or promotional materials. Please call Camille Schenkkan at (213) 972-8031 or email cschenkkan@CenterTheatreGroup.org.
