For too many, the difficulties faced when starting a career in theatre can seem insurmountable. Playhouse Theatre Group is committed to providing opportunities to young theatre artists and professionals, especially those from diverse backgrounds and underserved communities. We are excited to announce that we are now accepting applications to our new Professional Training Program for Summer 2022.

The Professional Training Program is designed specifically to open the door to college theatre artists and emerging professionals, giving them an opportunity to get hands-on experience as ensemble members in a nurturing and collaborative environment. In addition to serving a vital role in a professional company, participants will be given a $490 weekly stipend, professional development and networking opportunities, and access to masterclasses led by Playhouse staff and guest artists. The Professional Training Program with its increased stipend will replace our previous summer internship program.

Concentrations are available in the following areas: Performance, Marketing, Development, Finance, Company Management, Literary, Education, Stage Management, Costumes, and Production.

Participants are assigned a mentor for the duration of the program, and participation can often be customized to fit individual strengths and goals. Each participant will have a focus in their primary concentration as well as additional duties in secondary discipline.

Dates of the 9-week full time program are June 13-August 22, 2022.
