Industry Showcase Campaign

We are the 2017-18 Acting Apprentices—20 of the nation’s most promising young actors, selected to complete a nine-month apprenticeship with Actors Theatre’s Professional Training Company. Through this amazing program we have the opportunity to create, collaborate and learn from world-class theatre professionals in all kinds of ways—from creating our own solo performance pieces, to working on professional productions.

The culmination of our training in Louisville is the Apprentice Industry Showcase in April. Each year, the apprentices raise money to bring many of the nation’s leading casting directors and agents from New York and Chicago to Actors Theatre. At the showcase, my peers and I will perform selected scenes that highlight our talent, and have the opportunity to build professional relationships with some of gatekeepers of this industry in a unique setting.

This is where you can help! We hope to bring 25 theatre professionals to Louisville, which will require $25,000. Your tax-deductible gift of $100 or more can make all the difference.
