The CSC Apprentice Program is an intensive summer training program for young actors who are actively pursuing a career in theatre. This eight week training runs concurrently with CSC’s signature event, Free Shakespeare on the Common.
The apprenticeship offers a robust Shakespearean performance focus through professionally directed productions held in and around Boston. CSC faculty support the work in the rehearsal room through classes in voice and text analysis.
At the beginning of the program, we work with each apprentice to identify personal goals and track these together with faculty and staff throughout the summer. Apprentices will also bring their skills and enthusiasm to audience engagement and front-of-house work on the Boston Common where they are an integral part of the production’s success. In addition, our program offers 7 EMC points towards Apprentice’s Actor’s Equity Association Membership should they choose.
