NightBlue Performing Arts Internship Opportunity
This program is partially supported by a grant from the Illinois Arts Council, a state agency.

NightBlue Performing Arts Company is a professional 501(c)(3) not-for-profit performing arts company. As an inclusive program providing performance opportunities to people of all backgrounds including regular training for young adults, NightBlue has a vibrant history of involving community youth in its productions both on and off the stage. NightBlue continues to provide cutting-edge, award-winning theater in Chicago and on its Southside, featuring professional actors of all ages.

In keeping with NightBlue’s initiative to expose community youth to the arts, NightBlue has developed an off-stage teen internship program in the administrative and technical stage areas. In January, NightBlue received a grant from the Illinois Arts Foundation to assist in aggressively pursuing a total of 4 high school aged students, 2 for each session of the program. There will be a spring and a summer session, and each session provides the opportunity for one teen to act as an intern in both the administrative and technical areas. Each teen will benefit from this experience both creatively and educationally, and will receive weekly guidance from the NightBlue staff. Below you will find more specific details regarding each paid internship opportunity. NightBlue can also extend the hours of the internship and provide certification for service hours as a charitable organization. Please contact Tina Smith, Program Administrator, at tina@nightbluetheater.com for more information or to obtain an application.
