QSE Apprentice Program
Applicants to the Apprentice program do not need any previous experience performing Shakespeare. Apprentices must be at least 18 years of age by the beginning of the Stradbroke Intensive (February 1st, 2021).There is no upper age limit. The ideal apprentice is a theatre artist who wants to enrich their craft by immersion in classical text and its performance. Apprentices receive extensive training in the Linklater voice method, movement, and QSE’s approaches to working with classical text, as well as having the opportunity to engage in a range of activities and tasks involved in putting on a production and running a theatre company.
The cost of the Apprentice Program is $800 (including QSE membership), which covers training plus mentor-ship from experienced company members valued at over $2000. The apprentice program runs from January 24th to July 11th, and is a part-time commitment other than during the intensive training periods listed in General Application Information.
