This year’s Intern/Apprentice Company project will be performed 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), Troilus and Cressida (2014), and King John (2015).
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 2016 Apprentice Actor Training Program is $1500, which includes housing for the summer. Scholarships and some financial aid are available. Rehearsals in 2016 begin Tuesday, May 10th. The professional company productions of As You Like It and Julius Caesar open on June 24th and 25th followed by our musical Georama on July 1st. All three run in repertory through Sunday, July 31st. The Intern/Apprentice Project opens July 20th and runs until July 28th in rep with the other productions. Apprentices participate in strike and are finished on Wednesday, August 3rd.
