Arden Professional Apprentice

Arden Theatre Company

Post Date: Feb 1, 2024

The Arden is seeking Arden Professional Apprentices (APAs) for the 2024/25 season. The Arden Professional Apprentice Program’s philosophy is to provide a comprehensive knowledge of the inner workings of a nonprofit regional theatre. It is designed to foster future theatre leaders. The program provides apprentices with a comprehensive knowledge of the inner workings of a nonprofit regional theatre through work in EVERY aspect of operations including front of house, box office, marketing, development, artistic, education, production, stage management, finance, and general management. Apprentices will not be assigned to a specific position or department but will be immersed in ALL departments. This is not an acting program, this is not a directing program. This program is a full-time-plus commitment running from early September to mid-June. Housing and transportation are the apprentice’s responsibility. Bachelor’s degree or equivalent required. 

How To Apply

Applications for the 2024/25 season will be accepted from February 1 - May 2, 2024.  

Applications must include cover letter, resume, 3 professional references, 2 letters of recommendation, and a short essay outlining their 5-year plan and how this program will play a role in achieving their goals.  Incomplete applications will not be considered.
