The Professional Training Company produces a full season of shows, focusing entirely on new works. Members of the company produce, support, and participate in some or all of these productions in roles matching their apprenticeship specialization (acting apprentices act in each production, directing apprentices direct or assistant direct, marketing apprentices develop marketing plans, etc.
Directing apprentices will work directly with and receive mentorship and training from senior members of the Artistic team. Additionally, apprentices will observe some of the finest directors in the country while assisting on mainstage shows, including for the Humana Festival of New American Plays. Apprentices are also guaranteed several directing opportunities (including new play workshops, solo performance pieces, and ten-minute plays) with the Professional Training Company. Note that this apprenticeship is equal parts observation and directing.
