The YPF apprentice team members receive immersion training in theatre production from Mid-May to the End of June during our Young Playwrights Festival. They are a major part of every aspect of production and are truly the backbone of the entire festival.

Each apprentice will have the opportunity to:

- Stage manage at least one play
- Run the light and/or sound board
- Work as the running crew
- Participate in production meetings
- Work closely with the Festival Producer
- Train with the Production Stage Manager in all aspects of production
- Work closely with many different directors, actors, designers and producers

If the apprentice has skills or interest in a specific area of production we will give them training and/or responsibilities accordingly.

This training program is equivalent to at least a full year of college level courses in theatre production. This is a full time position and our most in-depth and fast paced apprenticeship. There is no pay, but most apprentices receive school credit for their participation. You do NOT need to be a student to apply, but you must be at least 18 and have an interest in theatre.

The festival began in 1992 and has evolved into a unique national competition for playwrights 9 to 19. For more information about the festival go to www.YoungPlaywrights.com.

For ALL apprenticeships we are looking for candidates with:

- An eagerness and willingness to learn
- A love for theatre
- A strong work ethic
- Great people skills
- A desire to be a part of the theatre community
- Efficient time management skills
- Basic office and computer skills
- Aptitude for coordinating and organizing

Apprentice perks include: hands on, professional experience, free shows, great connections, and the opportunity to work with and learn from esteemed professionals in every facet of the non-profit theater world.
