Apply to be an Intern

"Besides being a ton of fun, interning with MCT summer camps gave me hands-on experience in production management and showed me the power of theater education. Interacting with the kids and working alongside professional educators was transformative."

- Nick Schrier, Cocodaco Dance Project of Chicago
"Being an Intern for MCT was an experience like no other. Having the opportunity to see how a show is put together in the eyes of the set designer, music director, choreographer and acting coach really gave me a greater appreciation for what happens on the stage! And plus, there's nothing more fun than working with kids that are discovering how awesome it is to be on stage!"

- Elijah Curry, Carnival Cruise Line Entertainment

Beardsley Theater
Auditions July 23, 24, 2018
Rehearsals Start—July 30
Run—Sept.14—29, 2018

Poisoned apples. Glass slippers. Who needs ’em?! Not Snow White and her posse of disenchanted princesses in the hilarious hit musical that is anything but Grimm. Forget the princesses you think you know. When these royal renegades toss off their tiaras, this hilariously subversive, not-for-the-kiddies musical cleverly reveals what really happened ‘ever after’!


Becky's New Car  
Beardsley Theater
Auditions—Sept. 24, 25,  2018
Rehearsals Start —Oct.1
Run—Nov.16—Dec. 2, 2018

Have you ever been tempted to flee your own life? Becky Foster is caught in middle age, middle management and in a middling marriage—with no prospects for change on the horizon. Then one night a socially inept and grief-struck millionaire stumbles into the car dealership where Becky works. Becky is offered nothing short of a new life…and the audience is offered a chance to ride shotgun in a way that most plays wouldn’t dare.



The Old Settler 
Frauenthal Black Box
Auditions—Nov. 19, 20, 2018
Rehearsals Start—Nov. 26
Run—Jan. 18—26, 2019

Old Settler: a woman who is pushing 40 who’s never been married and has no prospects… Sparks fly in a 1943 Harlem tenement between 55-year-old spinster, Redwood Elizabeth Borny, and her skeptical sister, Quilly McGrath when Husband Witherspoon, a handsome young Great Migrator arrives on their doorstep. Husband’s quest to find his long-lost love, Lou Bessie, is thwarted when he finds an unexpected new romance with an Old Settler. Full of humor and grit, this story of American love and survival reverberates with timelessness and warmth.


The Women of Lockerbie
Beardsley Theater
Auditions—Dec. 10, 11, 2018
Rehearsals Start—Jan. 1, 2019
Run—Feb 15—March 2, 2019

A mother from New Jersey roams the hills of Lockerbie Scotland, looking for her son’s remains that were lost in the crash of Pan Am 103. She meets the women of Lockerbie, who are fighting the U.S. government to obtain the clothing of the victims found in the plane’s wreckage. The women, determined to convert an act of hatred into an act of love, want to wash the clothes of the dead and return them to the victim’s families. The Women of Lockerbie is loosely inspired by a true story, although the characters and situations in the play are purely fictional. It is a poetic drama about the triumph of love over hate.

Once upon a time, there was a little ogre named Shrek…” Thus begins the tale of an unlikely hero who finds himself on a life-changing journey alongside a wisecracking Donkey and a feisty princess who resists her rescue. Throw in a short-tempered bad guy, a cookie with an attitude and over a dozen other fairy tale misfits and you’ve got the kind of mess that calls for a real hero. Luckily, there’s one on hand…and his name is Shrek. Based on the Oscar-winning DreamWorks Animation film, Shrek The Musical is a Tony Award-winning fairy tale adventure.
