2024/25 SEASON PROFESSIONAL APPRENTICE PROGRAM
ABOUT THE PROGRAM:
The Lantern's professional apprentice program provides training in all aspects of professional, not-for-profit theater operations and management, and includes rotations in artistic, administrative, and technical functions, including box office, house management, run crew, stage management, technical production, and theater building maintenance. Ours is not an acting apprentice program, but theater artists with performance aspirations are encouraged to apply and may have opportunities to understudy and/or audition for roles.
Ideal candidates may have recently completed an undergraduate theater program and/or have some relevant theater experience in administrative, artistic, and/or technical areas. Apprentices work full-time schedules (40 hours per week) throughout the season and must be available for evening and weekend performances for most rotations, including rotations around major holidays (Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year's, etc.). The professional apprentice program is a full-time commitment, and we are unable to accommodate candidates with significant outside obligations. Candidates without existing conflicts will be given preference.
The Lantern's 2024/25 season will begin in September 2024 and run through June 2025; the apprentice program will begin on July 29, 2024, and end in late June 2025.
