Now in its 40th year, the Acting Apprentice Company is one of the nation’s oldest continuing pre-professional companies. Each year nearly 2000 young artists audition for the chance to spend a season-long residency at the Tony Award-winning home of the Humana Festival of New American Plays.
During their residency, Company members raise funds to support an industry showcase. This year, the Company will cover the cost of bringing agents, casting directors and other industry professionals from New York and Chicago to the Humana Festival for both a formal showcase presentation and a performance of the Humana Anthology.
To provide assistance that will allow this talented group of young artists make the contacts necessary to continue their professional careers.
