How to Apply

Throughout the years the program has been manipulated, altered, changed again, overhauled, and tweaked to make the experience as positive as possible. In 10 weeks this summer, the 8 fellows will design 4 shows (two 2nd stage experimental productions in our Wedge Series and two children’s theatre productions in our KIDDSTUFF season), collaborate with four Hangar Drama League Directors, mentor four Design Apprentices, and assist on the Mainstage productions. This is Design Boot Camp!

This program will challenge you to think – creatively, quickly, and collaboratively. This program will force you out of your design comfort zone. This program will hone your artistic voice.

Working closely with the Design Fellows, are our Design Apprentices. Four apprentices will learn design techniques by assisting the Design Fellows with the designs for the KIDDSTUFF and Wedge productions. There will be one apprentice in each of the four major design areas (costumes, lights, sound, and scenery). Apprentices will also assist in the load-in/hang/focus as appropriate for their particular area for the Mainstage, KIDDSTUFF, and Wedge productions. Apprentices will attend production meetings, design meetings and design the final KIDDSTUFF production of the season.
