The Araca Project

Each year, the Araca Project is dedicated to producing a new play for a New York City theatre by emerging artists from 5 schools including Northwestern University. In 2016, three of the seven projects featured were created by Northwestern graduates. Applications are currently being accepted for 2017. Selected teams will pitch their projects in NYC on April 21, and a one-week Producing Seminar with selected industry professionals will take place in July as selected teams prepare their projects for theatrical premieres in the fall. The other schools that belong to the Araca Group include Syracuse University, University of Michigan, Florida State University, and Yale University.

Application deadline is Monday, March 13, and can be submitted through the Araca Project’s website:

Adventures of an EPICS intern: Hey, Why Not Me?

Today marks my one month of intern-hood at The Second City’s Producer’s Row. What a month! I went from feeling like the new girl who asked way too many questions, to being the veteran who answered everyone’s questions. I can tell you the best place to find dinner or a drink in Old Town and definitely recommend some shows for you to come see! Currently running, “#DateMe: An OKCupid Experiment.” I saw it last night with my friends and laughed SO hard. I also ate some phenomenal pretzel bites, shout out to my friends in the kitchen.

Being an intern is being a sponge. You absorb everything you hear, and slowly, you start to understand it all. Some of my favorite things I’ve absorbed are:

  1. Old traditions that actors keep backstage (no photos allowed!)
  2. The Second City’s plans and ideas for improving their directing program
  3. The nitty gritty rules of The Actor’s Equity Association and how to create appropriate contracts

I’ve definitely gotten more papercuts in the last month than in my entire life, but I don’t mind. Being told to organize files may feel like busy work, but my boss, Brian Loevner (Managing Producer) encourages me to read all of the files and see what they’re about! So, fellow Northwestern interns in an office somewhere, read everything you can get your hands on. You won’t have the same chance forever… plus I once found an old script from when Tina Fey and Rachel Dratch performed in the mainstage cast!

The office feels small, but every person is in charge of so much. From associate producers, to casting directors, to marketing, to the art department, Producer’s Row churns out a lot in a day. A sector I didn’t know much about, Diversity and Inclusion, is the part of The Second City I really want to touch on in my next blog, so check back, because it is all just so cool.

 

Liz Coin is a sophomore Radio, Television, and Film student who is interning at Second City this quarter.
