Apprentice Program

The Apprentice Program is a key component of the Notre Dame Shakespeare Festival (NDSF). Apprentices work side by side with career professionals in a theatrical setting, and hail not only from our home campuses at Notre Dame, Saint Mary’s College, and Holy Cross College, but other universities and colleges across the United States. Many former Apprentices enjoy careers in acting, design, production, and administration. Paid positions are available at both the professional and apprentice levels.

Most apprenticeships last nine (9) weeks. Apprentice actors receive three weeks of training in voice, text, and movement. Apprentice designers, stage managers, and technicians receive on-the-job training and may participate in masterclasses.
