Watertown Children’s Theatre Apprenticeship Program for high school students

Watertown Children’s Theatre (WCT) is accepting applications for its newest offering, the WCT Apprenticeship Program for high school students. The apprenticeship program provides the free opportunity to learn about mounting a professional theatrical production under the one-on one mentorship of a member of the WCT design team. Program participants are paired with mentors from the theatre’s professional production staff to ensure a high quality experience, apprenticing in one of three disciplines: costume, lighting and sound, or set and props design.

Apprentices will be selected through an application and interview process; students in grades 10– 12 are eligible to apply.  The program will occur over approximately 4 months, February – June, 2012. Selected apprentices will work on productions that are part of the regular WCT season. The program includes weekly meetings on-site with mentors, a monthly production meeting, individual work (research and design), and a concentrated period of time on-site during technical rehearsal weeks.

Applications are due Wednesday, February 1.  For more information or to receive an application form, call Kelly MacIsaac, Producing Director of Programming at 617.926.ARTS (2787) or visit www.watertownchildrenstheatre.org.
