Apprentice Program Alumni
Creating and educational, professional space to hone your craft
The GRSF apprenticeship program reminded me that Shakespeare’s work is best approached with a generous sense of play, and a willingness to be physically invested in the text at an athletic level.
Winona, MN is a community that helps support the process immensely, and the success of the apprenticeship process would be impossible without them!
Season 14 Apprentice, Season 15 Acting Intern
I came to the GRSF Acting Apprentice Program immediately after finishing my MFA. It was the perfect way to transition from school to working in professional theater. The environment created around apprentices is supportive, collaborative and challenging. It was an extremely rewarding summer and I recommend it to anyone interested in a career as a professional actor.
Season 13 Apprentice
[It was] one of the best experiences of my life. It allowed me to grow as a performer and a person alongside some amazing people who will be my friends the rest of my life. The neat thing about the program is that it lets you see all walks of life in the theater which, going through it, no one should take for granted. It is a cultivation of a professional world, but wholly unique in that it is also a cultivation of family.
