“The best part of the internship is how much history is at The Second City,” explains Kolstad. “It’s really inspiring to walk around in the same building that started the careers of Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Stephen Colbert—just to name a few. Also, I get to see shows and take classes at The Second City. It couldn’t get much better.”
Internships in the theater are common for Lake Forest students and give them access to much-needed skills and experiences. Theater students have interned for the Illinois Arts Council, Court Theatre, Bailiwick Theater, and award-winning Steppenwolf Theater and Goodman Theatre, among many others.
