ShawChicago Internship Program

ShawChicago is the resident theater company at The Ruth Page Center for the Arts located in a historic 1927 building in the Gold Coast.  We are a non-profit 501(c)3 organization committed to presenting concert readings of some of the greatest theatrical literature of the late 19th to mid 20th centuries. Our mission is to present the works of Bernard Shaw (1856-1950) and his contemporaries.

Two types of internships are available for current students and recent graduates:

Management Interns gain experience in the areas of Membership Relations and Communications, Marketing and Social Media, Business Management and Special Projects.
