Transcendence Theatre Company’s apprentice/internship program offers a unique opportunity for individuals to gain practical experience in wine country’s premiere not-for-profit theater. Internships and Apprenticeships are offered in a variety of departments, from the creative to the administrative, and interns and apprentices are encouraged to explore beyond their department to learn more about how the theater functions as a whole.
The internship/ apprenticeship program aims to provide individuals with valuable mentorship and expert training, bridging the gap between academic education and practice. Interns and apprentices are an integral part to the success of our summer performances. Supporting Transcendence in its daily activities, interns and apprentices will gain insight, knowledge, and hands-on experience in all aspects of the theater. We offer tickets to Transcendence main stage summer productions, and bi-weekly Artist Advancement workshops. A weekly stipend is available for all internships and apprentices. Travel, housing and transportation will be provided for certain Apprentice positions.
Ideal intern and apprentice candidates should be enthusiastic, dedicated workers with an interest in using the arts as acts of service for a specific community. We are looking for people who are detail-oriented, independent, have a sense of humor, and are able to multi-task.
