Program Overview (from the program website):

The Arden Professional Apprentice Program's philosophy is to provide a comprehensive knowledge of the inner workings of a nonprofit regional theatre. It is designed to foster future theatre leaders. The program provides apprentices with a comprehensive knowledge of the inner workings of a nonprofit regional theatre through work in EVERY aspect of operations including front of house, box office, marketing, development, artistic, education, production, stage management, finance, and general management. Apprentices work approximately 50 hours a week in ALL departments. This is not an acting program; this is not a directing program.

This well-rounded experience serves our APAs well as they begin their careers in the local and national performing arts communities. Former APAs include:

- Jill Scott, Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter
- Julianne Brienza, Executive Director and co-Founder of the Capital Fringe Festival in Washington, DC
- Clayton Tejada, Technical Director at The Wilma Theater
- Christine Barbush Kozsuch, Director of Marketing and Communications at The People's Light & Theatre Company
- Raelle Myrick-Hodges, Artistic Director of the Brava Theatre Center in San Francisco
- Andrew Vaught, Artistic Director and co-Founder of Cripple Creek Theatre Company in New Orleans
- Plus, five full-time employees here at the Arden!


The program offers a salary of $400 per week, health insurance, paid time off, complimentary tickets to Arden Theatre Company productions, understudy opportunities, EMC credit, and the opportunity to meet and network with members of the Philadelphia community.
