Apprenticeship Program

First Act offers Apprenticeships to students ages 16-20 in areas of technical and design theatre.

Professional Experience

These unique internships will give students the opportunity to work on one of First Act’s shows in an area “behind the scenes.” Students will work with the Artistic Team, professional designers, and parent committees to learn valuable skills in technical theatre, theatre design, and stagecraft. Each apprenticeship will be designed with the individual in mind – whether an apprentice is a seasoned-pro and wants to gain some leadership experience in their chosen area, or is brand new and wants to learn on the job, this apprenticeship will offer experience and training in a hands-on environment. The First Act Apprentice Program will allow students a chance to learn, educate, lead, and explore!
