Shakespeare on the Sound will form its fifth annual Apprentice Company in 2013 to give theater students and developing artists the opportunity to work with some of the country's leading theater artists on our summer production and beyond. Apprenticeship's will cover all aspects of professional theatre in both artistic and technical theater arts. This hands on apprentice program will provide a deeply meaningful and educational opportunity for growth and development to selected high school and college students with a demonstrated interest in theater and will give them direct access to national leaders in the field. All apprentices will create their own work and a few will have the opportunity to be featured in the main stage show.
The apprentice company will consist of up to fifteen selected applicants of diverse backgrounds, ages 16 to 25, with a passion for and commitment to the theater, and especially those who are interested in pursuing theater careers. Apprentice Company will be announced on January 31. Major duties will take place May thru July.
Applications are currently available online and deadline to apply will be Friday, January 25th. Open to all students ages 16-25. Please visit our web site for application, full details for the Apprentice Company and criteria for applying. www.shakespeaonthesound.org.
