Career Development

Be in the room where it happens!
Being in the room where creative theatre professionals are working at the height of their craft is a transformational experience. The ACT Observership program gives you the opportunity to follow a production through four touchpoints: designer presentations and the first table read; a blocking (staging) rehearsal; a technical rehearsal; and a public performance.

Discussion and reflection will be facilitated by Artistic Associate, Education Shana Bestock.

Open to ages 14 – 30
Some dates flexible around your schedule; contact us with any questions.
