Technical Apprentice Program

Prior experience not necessary. Enthusiasm required!

Northern Stage believes the artistry that happens behind the scenes is just as important as the actors on stage. We pride ourselves in having a fully professional and exceptionally gifted production staff, from our technical director, to our scenic artists, to our props master. We are excited to launch our brand new Technical Apprentice Program (TAP) in conjunction with our Summer Musical Theater Intensive production of The Drowsy Chaperone. This program is designed to train and inspire technical theater artists of the future. TAP covers the following technical areas:

Set & Props

Scenic Artist

Costume & Wardrobe

Lighting & Sound

Stage Management

DATES: July 5th-July 30th
AGE RANGE: 14-18
TAP is limited to 5 apprentices. Register now to reserve your spot.

TAP Schedule

Part 1: Construction
Come build in our state-of-the-art shops alongside Northern Stage professionals. Study the design of The Drowsy Chaperone and learn how to translate the drawings, renderings, measurements, and paint elevations into your craft.

DATES: July 5th-July 20th (Monday-Friday)
TIME: 1-4pm

Part 2: Tech Rehearsal
Tech rehearsals are a very exciting time where all the technical elements of a production are brought together with the actors in the theater. These rehearsals are a critical and thrilling time where you see your work merge with the other departments to create a production that is bigger than the sum of its parts.

DATES: July 21st-July 23rd
TIME: 9am-10pm (2 hour dinner break)

Part 3: Performance
We have 8 performances of The Drowsy Chaperone and you will have the opportunity to help run the show! This will be a fun time to celebrate all the hard work you have done and enjoy sharing it with thousands of people.

DATES: July 25th-July 30th
TIME: Noon-10pm, (1 hour dinner break)

The exact hours of TAP are subject to change as we tailor the program to each individual apprentice.
