Job Description

TheatreSquared Apprentice Program

Fall 2024 – Spring 2025

Apprentice Program

TheatreSquared is seeking a class of 4 apprentices for the 2024/25 Season. TheatreSquared’s Apprentice Program for emerging young professionals is designed to launch the careers of talented early arts leaders, with a special focus on candidates with lived experiences traditionally underrepresented in the American Theatre. In particular, the company strongly encourages individuals who identify themselves as Black, Indigenous, or People of Color (BIPOC) to apply. 

Apprentices receive a living wage, personalized training, and an in-depth, hands-on experience with top-tier professionals at T2, serving as a launching pad for a lifetime career in professional theatre. Each participant has the opportunity to receive specialized mentorship in a designated focus area. The apprenticeship culminates in a group project where all apprentices work together to create and execute a program of their choosing. 

Possible apprenticeship department areas include Marketing, Education, Costumes, Scenic painting, Technical Direction, Production Management, and Community Experience/Events.
Please read the department descriptions before making a selection.

Please note, we do not offer an acting apprenticeship.

Apprentices report to the Education Manager.

Apprenticeship program includes:

  • Mentorship from professionals in the field.
  • Professional development workshops.
  • Meetings with fellow apprentices where the group will engage with visiting artists, directors, and other guests.
  • Ability to add to individual portfolios
  • A culminating apprenticeship group project, created and executed by the apprenticeship team.

As an enthusiastic, early-career theatre professional—and as a positive, collaborative member of an inclusive workforce—this new staff member will help TheatreSquared answer the question, “How can a theatre be an agent of social change—helping foster a community that is fundamentally more equitable?”

 

QUALIFICATIONS

  • Open availability for the duration of the program: August 19, 2024 – May 16, 2025.
  • A passion for live theatre.
  • Highly organized and proactive, with the ability to take initiative and manage multiple tasks and projects at a time and deliver within deadlines.
  • Must be goal oriented, self-motivated, highly flexible and able to accept feedback.
  • Must have access to reliable transportation.
  • Must be at least 21 years of age to apply.
  • Ability to find and secure local housing.

 

DESIRABLE SKILL SETS

  • Background knowledge of, and experience in, theatre is preferred, but not required.
