The 2015 Intern/Apprentice Company project, King John, will be directed by Rick Barbour and perform eight times during the last week and a half of the season. Project production values are minimal so the focus remains on the actor, the text, and the audience. Past projects have included As You Like It (2004), Twelfth Night (2005), Cymbeline (2006), Julius Caesar (2007), Pericles (2008) and Hamlet (2009), Titus Andronicus (2010), King Lear (2011), All’s Well That Ends Well (2012), Macbeth (2013) and Troilus and Cressida (2014).
Apprentices are also asked to perform technical theater and administrative office assignments throughout the production build and performance run, on an as needed basis under the supervision of GRSF’s professional staff.
Tuition for the 2015 Apprentice Actor Training Program is $1500, which includes housing for the summer. Scholarships and some financial aid are available. Rehearsals in 2015 begin Tuesday, May 12th. The professional company productions of Much Ado About Nothing and Tennessee William’s The Glass Menagerie open on June 26th and 27th followed by Romeo and Juliet on July 3rd. All three run in repertory through Sunday, August 2nd. The Intern/Apprentice Project opens July 22nd and runs until July 30th in rep with the other productions. Apprentices participate in strike and are finished on Wednesday, August 5th.
