Children's Theatre Company To Hold Virtual And In-Person Auditions For 2024-2025 Performing Apprenticeships Children’s Theatre Company (CTC), the Tony Award®-winning flagship theatre for multigenerational audiences in North America, is actively searching for Non-Equity Actors aged 19 and above to audition for the Performing Apprentice (PA) program for the 2024–2025 Season. Recognized as the nation’s premiere theatre for multi-generational audiences, CTC boasts two exceptional venues—a 746-seat proscenium and a 299-seat fully adaptable theatre. PAs have the unique opportunity to perform on CTC stages in collaboration with our resident Acting Company members, equity and non-equity actors, student actors, and locally, nationally and internationally renowned guest artists, who have included Itamar Moses, Philip Dawkins, Lisa Portes, Henry Godinez, Carlyle Brown, Kia Corthron, Nilo Cruz, Naomi Iizuka, Greg Banks, Lloyd Suh, Michael Mahler, Alan Schmuckler, Jerome Hairston, and Cheryl L. West

PAs perform in named roles and as understudies, and participate in readings and workshops of new works. They also have an opportunity to interact with other departments at the theatre to help grow their professional development. Performing Apprentices have gone on to prolific careers in Minneapolis-Saint Paul, New York, and other major theatre regions, in some cases becoming CTC Acting Company members. 

BENEFITS: Children’s Theatre Company Performing Apprentices are paid positions. Apprentices are paid a weekly salary of $615, receive complimentary tickets to all CTC shows, and are eligible to participate in company health insurance. There are no crew, strike, or other technical requirements. The PA contract for next season runs September 2024 – June 2025.
