Calling All Powerhouse Apprentices!

Intense. Amazing. Life-changing. These are just some of the words Powerhouse Theater Apprentices use to describe their experience at Vassar.

Vassar College and New York Stage and Film are now accepting applications for the 2008 Powerhouse Theater Apprentice Program — a leading theater-immersion program that exposes young artists to a range of theatrical experiences in order to help them develop their own voices. Now in its 24th year, the Powerhouse Theater Program is a collaboration between Vassar and New York Stage and Film, a professional theater company.

Apprentices choose a discipline (acting, playwriting, or directing) and then work alongside some of the country’s leading and emerging theater professionals for six weeks, observing and participating in the process through which new works are created.

This year’s program will run from June 20 through August 3, 2008, at Vassar. It is available to rising high school seniors through college-aged students. Applications are due April 18, 2008.

For more information and how to apply, please visit Prospective applicants may also call Producing Director Edward Cheetham for more information at 845.437.5902.
