2019/20 Season Apprentice Program

Lantern Theater Company

Lantern Theater Company is now accepting applications for our 2019/20 season apprentice program. Our apprentice program provides training in all aspects of nonprofit professional theater management and operations, with rotations in both artistic and administrative functions, including but not limited to box office, house management, development, marketing, stage management, and production. Although not a dedicated acting apprentice program, theater artists on acting tracks are encouraged to apply; where appropriate to the casting, apprentices may have understudy opportunities.

Ideal candidates will have recently graduated from an undergraduate theater program and/or have some relevant administrative, technical, and/or artistic theater experience. The program offers a salary of $400 per week and paid time off, as well as free theater tickets, participation in special theater events, and complimentary enrollment in Lantern Theater School classes. Apprentices work full-time schedules (40+ hours per week) and must be available for evening and weekend performances for some of the rotations during the season (September 1, 2019 through June 30, 2020). Our goal is to select three or four apprentices by June 1 to start in August 2019. Candidates without existing conflicts will be given preference.

To Apply


Please send resume and cover letter describing your career objectives to jobs@lanterntheater.org with "2019/20 Season Apprentice" in the subject line.

Lantern Theater Company highly values diversity in the workplace and is an equal opportunity employer. Qualified candidates of all backgrounds are strongly encouraged to apply.
