TheatreFest 2019 - Eighty-Five and So a-LIVE

Apprenticeship Program

How it Works
Acceptance into the program requires the apprentice to attend the daily adjudications in the morning, apprenticeship program workshops in the afternoon, and the shows each evening. TSI covers the cost of accommodations, workshop fees, and tickets to each show (which include the after-party!). Applicants from competing groups involved in the festival production are highly discouraged.
Apprentices residing outside of Regina will have shared accommodations with another apprentice arranged for them at the festival hotel, Four Points by Sheraton.

This year the apprenticeship program is a Page to Stage themed  series  of workshops. Topics covered will include how to produce a play, play selection, script analysis, directing, and acting. Each topic will be covered on a different day of the week.

When: Monday April 29 - Friday May 3rd
Time: 1:00pm - 4:00pm
Where: The Four Points By Sheraton meeting room (festival hotel)

Apprentices are to arrive in Regina on Sunday April 28th in time for a meet and greet dinner at 5:30 before the show that evening.

Apprentices will also be required to attend the VIP Reception on Saturday May 4th at 5:30 before the show that evening.
