Apprentice Members: The League of Professional Theatre Women Apprentice Program, which began in 2014, is growing all the time. Apprentices each work with a Committee of LPTW and are mentored by a member of that committee. Apprentices also meet with each other and other mentors, help with LPTW events, and go on outings. It is an enormously valuable opportunity to work on arts advocacy at the same time as you build your professional network as a young theatre professional.
The requirements to be an Apprentice are that you have completed your education and/or theatre training, are not currently in school, are working as a theatre professional, but do not yet have the years of experience to qualify as a Member (see the website for the qualifications).
If you meet those criteria and are interested in applying to be an Apprentice for 2017-18, please complete the membership application and select “Apprentice” under membership type. You will need at least one sponsor from the LPTW Membership or recommendations by two professionals with whom you have worked and/or studied. Annual Dues: Free
The deadline to apply to be an Apprentice for the 2017-18 season is August 31, 2017. If you have any questions, please send them to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Board reserves the right to use its discretion to waive certain membership criteria by a majority vote on an individual basis.
