The Young Company (YC) is a paid professional theatre training program for college and university students and recent graduates looking for opportunities to train and perform alongside internationally renowned professional actors, directors, and designers. “We bridge the gap between academic and professional theatre,” says Ryan Producing Artistic Director Grant Mudge.

The Notre Dame Shakespeare Festival participates in the Actors’ Equity Membership Candidate Program (EMC), which permits actors and stage managers in training to credit theatrical work towards eventual membership in Equity.
