Our 2015 TAEAs with “Artistic Director Robert Kelley”

Are you an emerging director, dramaturg, or future Artistic Director?
Have you ever wondered how a large, professional, regional theatre operates?

TheatreWorks Silicon Valley is now accepting applications for our Artistic Engagement Apprentices 2016. We are seeking three pre-professionals interested in Directing, Dramaturgy and Artistic Management, to join the TheatreWorks Silicon Valley team for a ten week apprenticeship. Following the apprenticeship, they will be considered for assistant-to-the-director positions on shows later in the season.

This is a remarkable opportunity to observe and participate in the management of a successful professional theatre company. Rather than focusing on a single department, the apprentices will interact with our Marketing, Development, Education, and Artistic staff, working both on our New Works Festival and our mainstage season. At the end of the apprenticeship, they produce a showcase of scenes they have directed and will be considered for assistant-to-the-director positions on shows later in the season.

Here’s what past TAEAs have had to say about the program:

“There was plenty of work, but there was also plenty of joy…The importance of providing theatre to a young audience was brought to my attention in a way I had not witnessed before and I am grateful.”

“Listening to the audience react so positively to everyone’s hard work has been incredibly exciting and reaffirming of the power of theatre to enhance lives.”

“I truly enjoyed that experience, it was a blast!”
