All Blank Theatre apprentices get “hands-on” immersion training. Every apprentice gets the opportunity to become a major part of the process of producing theatre here at The Blank. We seek apprentices to help with various programs throughout the year.

Young Playwrights Festival Apprenticeship
A flagship apprenticeship program with tremendous opportunities for the participants. Each summer, 12 to 18 students (or sometimes returning veterans) from around the world are given invaluable hands-on immersion training in theatre as an integral part of the production team for the Young Playwrights Festival. This program includes 8 symposiums with theatre professionals in the first week and then the apprentices become the stage managers, assistant directors, and design assistants and are offered a unique opportunity to work with 12 different directors during the course of the Festival. This job-training program is free of charge. (mid-May to beginning of July).

Producing and Arts Administration Apprenticeship
These apprentices will work side by side with the Producer in every aspect of production as well as assisting with the general operation of the company. This program can be part time or full time and can take place over the summer, one semester or the full school year. It is also completely flexible.

Stage Management Apprenticeship The Living Room Series is our new play development program and has been in existence as long as the company has. Almost every Monday night from Labor Day to Memorial Day, we produce a fully staged reading of a new play. Apprentices in this program will work as the Stage Manager on new plays with various directors. They will have the opportunity to sit in on as many rehearsals as they choose, run the lights and sound for various productions. This is a part time position and comes with a small stipend per show. There are no fees for this job-training program.

THE CORE is a 5-week acting workshop taught by Blank Founding Artistic Director Daniel Henning focusing on:

  • Bringing uniqueness into the work by encouraging your true self
  • Empowering you to make your own bold choices and to trust them
  • Stretching your abilities beyond what you think is possible

THE CORE offers:

  • In-depth work through small class sizes
  • Individualized attention depending on your needs and level
  • Realistic application of the work to auditions, booking and performing the jobs

While THE CORE focuses on acting, many writers, directors and producers have taken THE CORE to better understand the art of creation and how to make their own work more focused and unique. Questions? Want to register? Call 323.871.8018 or e-mail classes@TheBlank.com.
