Bag&Baggage is pleased to announce a new training and professional development initiative, beginning in our 2017-2018 Season: The Bag&Baggage Apprenticeship Program!
This is a 10-month-long program, lasting from August to May, and requires a commitment of 20 hours per week. Each class of apprentices will play an essential role in B&B operations. Working in every facet of the organization, apprentices learn standards of professionalism while building their resumes and portfolios and forging connections within the broader theater community.
Our program offers emerging theater artists a bridge between their training and the profession of theatre, developing each individual’s skills by working alongside world-class designers, administrators, directors, and other experts. Apprentices will not only learn a huge number of skills, they will also be key members of our staff and the B&B family.
The Apprenticeship Program is targeted at emerging and early career theatre professionals; that includes, but is not limited to, undergraduate students preparing to graduate from a theatre program, recent graduates from undergraduate theatre programs, or individuals who are entering or returning to the theatre field after another career. Our ideal candidates have specific training in the theatrical field (either through college or a conservatory program), but are not yet established professionals in the field. We are seeking five apprentices per season.
