CTC is offering an unpaid internship opportunity to college juniors and seniors to gain valuable research experience and to play a critical role in a new, exciting project at the theatre. We are hoping that you would be willing to spread the word to your students and faculty in the English Department at UNC Charlotte.

CTC is launching a new project with support from the Women’s Impact Fund. CTC will commission and produce a new theatre work with a central theme of multiculturalism. CTC’s target audience for this project is young children and their families/caregivers. The production will be performed by CTC’s Tarradiddle Players Touring Company – CTC’s professional theatre troupe – over the course of two seasons, including a tour through the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Library system and community centers.

As part of the preparation, CTC must develop evaluation and assessment tools in order to measure the success of the library tour. Interns will be part of research team that will observe children and caregivers in various local library branches across the county and document patterns of audience attendance and activity at the libraries. Additional duties may include observing audience behavior before, during and after performances at Children’s Theatre of Charlotte and activities at ImaginOn: The Joe & Joan Martin Center.
