Since 2008, DirectorsLabChicago has offered a highly competitive intern program for undergraduate college students who are working toward a theatre degree and have a strong interest in stage direction. Interns are granted complete access to the Lab for invaluable opportunities of learning and relationship building.

Selected interns will assist in the running of the Lab and will have access to its events and activities at no cost. Interns who reside outside the Chicago area will be responsible for their own travel and lodging.

Because of the particular duties required of our interns, we are seeking potential interns who, in addition to their interest in stage directing, have experience or an enthusiastic interest in one or more of the following areas:

  • Arts or arts service organization administration

  • Event planning

  • Management

  • Marketing

  • Photography/videography

  • Public relations

  • Social media campaigns

  • Stage management

If you have any questions about the application or the internship, please contact Intern Program Director Vickie Daignault at
