Backstage at the Egyptian: Marketing Intern Karyn Holmes

Hi, my name is Karyn Holmes and I am the marketing intern for the Fall of 2022. I am a senior at Northern Illinois University in the Bachelor of General Studies program and am pursuing a certificate in Nonprofit Studies. I want to work at a nonprofit because I want to help society, whether that be through arts education, animal welfare, or social programs.  After graduation, I plan to find a job in Wisconsin to be closer to family.

Growing up, I dabbled in a few areas of the arts, joining a youth choir, taking children’s painting classes, and acting in many plays and musicals throughout my high school years. My family also liked going to concerts and live theatre and visited many venues around the Midwest. My favorite show was going to see Wicked in Madison.

I am excited to intern at the Egyptian Theatre because of the wide variety of shows they are offering in the Fall 2022 season. I realize that my childhood love of arts would not be as strong had my parents and grandparents not taken me to see shows that aligned with my interest.
