Job Description

PORTLAND STAGE COMPANY seeks Costume Apprentices for its 2024-2025 season.

All Portland Stage employees, apprentices and guest artists agree to create a work environment that respects diverse ideas, races, genders, sexualities, abilities, culture, and religions, contribute to working in an anti-racist theater, and value Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Access (IDEA).

Costume Apprentices work alongside professional production staff in their assigned departments, assisting with all aspects of construction, maintenance, and run crew. Specific duties will vary according to the particular needs of each production. Costume Apprentices may also assist designers on a production, depending on interest, ability, and availability. All apprentices spend time in other departments to expand their knowledge in all areas of technical theater.  Costumes/Wardrobe are typically on many run crew assignments throughout the year.

The Portland Stage Apprenticeship Program is committed to training future generations of theater professionals. Applicants should be highly motivated individuals who have acquired basic training in the theater arts and are looking to explore their field further through meaningful hands-on experience. Portland Stage apprentices can expect to be challenged by a creative process that relies on both ingenuity and collaboration.

Apprentices at Portland Stage work with leading designers, directors, administrators, and our professional production team throughout the season. They leave with a greater knowledge of the theatrical process and the satisfaction of being part of a dedicated theater company where exceptional quality is the end goal.
