If you are between the ages of 13 and 18 (rising 8th graders through rising seniors) and want to explore theatre, Parkway Playhouse’s Apprenticeship is a perfect venue.  Apprentices grow and earn valuable experience that help towards future goals. Each apprentice is required to complete 60 hours of non-rehearsal/performance time at the Playhouse. At the end of the apprenticeship, each participant will leave with a certificate of completion, a thicker resume, some work experience, and fun summer memories!

Please note that we will only accept up to 10 apprentices per season. Even though this is an unpaid apprenticeship, we use the same criteria used to hire our professional staff. Only the most qualified and passionate of applicants are selected.

All application materials (completed Google Form and two references) are due April 1, 2022.
