“Being a part of the mentor/apprentice program was absolutely wonderful, I got to learn from experienced mentors who treated me as their equal and learn valuable skills that have prepared me for future theatre endeavors. I would highly recommend this program to any aspiring designers, directors, or managers.”
“Working on the Apprentice show for costuming was an incredible experience. I learned a lot and my mentor and fellow apprentices got along so well, everyone was so welcoming! If you’re interested in theatre, I recommend this program 100%. It’s so educational, you’ll get to see the many different aspects of theatre and how everything comes together, and have fun!”
“I could not have asked for a better experience from the program, everything from the people I worked with to the skills I learned. I would absolutely do it again!”
