Acting Apprentice Auditions

Apprentice Program Casting Notice

American Players Theatre Apprentice Company Season 2024

If interested for consideration, please consider the following:

The Apprentice Company is made up of early career actors who have a passion for dense poetic texts and an interest in learning. Apprentices play mini supporting roles in addition to understudying larger roles throughout the season. Our apprentices are salaried, housed and are not required to do tech work.

Apprentices attend classes with our Voice and Text staff, directors and Core Company actors in preparation for our large outdoor space. There is considerable mentorship involved and the chosen cohort self-produce a final showcase at the end of our season and completion of the program.

APT's season runs from April 10 - September 29, 2024. Due to the nature of repertory performance, we are not able to consider any actor who is not available for the entirety of the season.

In Summer 2024, APT will produce eight shows in rotating repertory.

On our 1000 seat outdoor Hill Theatre stage: Ring Round the Moon directed by Laura Gordon, Much Ado About Nothing directed by Robert Ramirez, August Wilson's Ma Rainey's Black Bottom directed by Gavin Lawrence, Dancing at Lughnasa directed by Brenda DeVita and King Lear directed by Tim Ocel.

Inside our 200 seat Touchstone Theatre: The Virgin Queen Entertains Her Fool directed by Aaron Posner, Wolf at the Door directed by Melisa Pereyra and Constellations directed by Vanessa Stalling.
