For more than 20 years, Trinity Rep has committed to developing the future leaders of the American theater with professional training programs in administrative, artistic, and production fields. What began as internships for recent college graduates has evolved into robust season-long apprenticeships which provide comprehensive training for individuals early in their career. Apprentices will launch their theater careers by training and working alongside staff as integral parts of the team. Apprentices will begin in late September and learn alongside their staff colleagues for 35 weeks.

Apprentices work in all areas of Trinity Rep, including Arts Admin, Sound, Education, Electrics, Scenic/Props, Costumes, Production Management, Stage Management.*
*Please note that we have a limited number of positions available for the 2021-22 Season as many were filled by applicants who were selected for the 2020-21 Season but were unable to join us because of the pandemic.
