Pope Professional Apprenticeship Program

The Phoenix Theatre Company, a LOA LORT D Theatre and Arizona’s largest professional regional theatre, seeks Apprentices for their 2022/2023 Season.

Apprentices will be selected for the following areas: Props, Scenic, Lighting, Sound, Stage Management, Costumes and Wardrobe.

Located in the heart of the Central Arts District close to downtown, our beautiful 14-acre campus includes three theaters, a restaurant and bar, rehearsal halls, administrative offices, and costume, scenic, prop, lighting and paint shops, all on one site. Some of the exciting shows this season include: An American in Paris, Bandstand, Dreamgirls, Cinderella and The Book of Will. The Phoenix Theatre Company produces shows in both a 380 seat proscenium space and a 250 seat black box space, for a jam packed versatile season. The Phoenix Theatre Company developed and operates within a robust COVID safety system. Safety systems include: weekly testing for those working with AEA actors free of charge at the theatre and mask adherence. We require all apprentices to be fully vaccinated/up to date for in person work. All systems will be assessed and nimble based on AEA/CDC and state guidelines.

To be considered we strongly desire a Bachelor’s degree in theatre or equivalent training and individuals must be seriously seeking a career in the theatre arts. Approval is based on a cover letter/resume, interview and 3 references. Please make sure your cover letter states which department you are applying for.

This is a full season program; agreements start early Aug./Sept. 2022 and end late Aug./Sept. 2023 with flexible start and end dates. Non local apprentices are provided free housing utilities included in your own studio apartment. Each apprentice earns a weekly stipend of $150.00 for their volunteership.
