2021-22 Season Apprentice

Post Date: Apr 27, 2021

Join the next generation of theatre professionals making theatre for today’s world. InterAct Theatre Company is offering part-time 2021-22 Season apprenticeships for up to four (4) emerging theatre professionals interested in what goes on behind the scenes. This program is intended to give apprentices hands-on experience in a professional theatre company’s administrative and production operations. It is not an acting or directing program.

Please note: The duties and structure described are what we currently anticipate for the 2021-22 Season. However, due to ongoing uncertainty around the COVID-19 pandemic, apprenticeship duties and structure are subject to change.

The 2021-22 Season Apprenticeship will run September 7, 2021 through June 30, 2022. Apprentices will work up to 20 hours per week in the office during InterAct’s business hours. Primary office duties include box office, customer service, office administration and facilities management. Additional office duties will vary day-by-day, and may include assisting with marketing and social media, development and fundraising, literary management and other needs. In addition, apprentices will participate in season selection for the upcoming year, and other opportunities may arise to participate in new play development and casting.

For each of InterAct’s main stage productions, each apprentice will rotate serving as House Manager, Box Office Manager and Production Assistant. During these rotations, apprentices will be called for weeknights and weekends. In addition, the Production Assistant will be asked to attend as many rehearsals for their show as possible, working with InterAct staff to establish a schedule. Weekly office hours will be adjusted accordingly.

Apprentices receive a $400 monthly stipend; flexible scheduling; complimentary tickets to InterAct productions and other productions at The Drake; opportunities to work with local and visiting artists; monthly lunches with local theatre professionals; and direct access to staff for professional development and mentorship. Housing and health benefits are not provided.
