Off Campus Internships

Learning in the Theatre Department is not limited to coursework. The department offers vast opportunities, on and off campus, for students to gain experience and develop their technical, design, and performance skills.

  • Hope offers internship programs in Chicago and Philadelphia which can place students in jobs in a variety of backstage or administrative positions.
  • One of the best internship programs for theatre students is the GLCA New York Arts Program, which is recognized by the Great Lakes Colleges Association to which Hope belongs. In this fall or spring semester work/study program, students live in New York City, take classes, and apprentice with practicing artists or com-panes in theatre, dance, film, television production, or arts management.
  • For students who are looking for other professional opportunities, the Theatre Department helps them prepare for and participate in off-campus auditions such as the Midwest Theatre Auditions, the University/Resident Theatre Association Auditions, or the Irene Ryan Acting Award Scholarships, sponsored by the Kennedy Center/American College Theater Festival. Students who have participated in these rigorous, competitive auditions have gone on to work in various theatres across the country.
