Thinking of applying for the 2019 Apprentice Company?  Here is some information you will find helpful…

Opportunities exist in the following disciplines: acting, directing, stage management, playwriting, costume design, and arts administration.  We are searching for talented emerging artists and administrators.

Successful candidates will be self-motivated, dedicated, inquisitive, collaborative, enthusiastic, and capable of working in a fast-paced, challenging, multi-faceted environment.  Apprentices function as an integral part of Shakespeare on the Sound, and will have the opportunity to work directly with the accomplished and professional artists creating the mainstage production.  Shakespeare on the Sound is committed to diversity and inclusion. We strongly encourage all those interested to apply.

Additionally, members of our Apprentice Company attend master classes with professionals in New York City, including classes for theater disciplines other than their chosen specialty. They also organize Shakespeare on the Sound's annual Budding Bards festival for new artists. 

  **must be available to start Monday, May 13, 2019.

Requirements: applicants must be between 18-25. Most of our apprentices are either in college or recent graduates, and we also consider artists who have not attended college.  Unfortunately we can no long accommodate high school students in any artistic disciplines. High school students interested in theater administration can apply for our internship. Time commitment for most apprentices is early May through the second week in July, though some apprenticeships may begin earlier.  The position is unpaid.  Travel compensation to and from NYC rehearsal space and CT will be provided.  Housing is not available.  Deadline to apply for the 2019 Apprentice Company is March 1, 2019
