The Apprentice Program is an unpaid educational adventure that is an invaluable experience in learning the business of theatre, the mechanics of putting on a production, honing and learning new skills and observing professionals in their craft. A fully hands-on learning experience, that is cultivated in real-job application. Many of our apprentices have gone on to have very successful careers in theatre, film and other areas.
