Apprentice Company Program
The GET Apprentice Company Program brings young professional artists to Georgia Ensemble Theatre for a full season, during which time they work and learn in one of Atlanta’s longest running professional theatres. They leave confident and fully equipped with professional training, support, and thorough understanding of the inner workings of a successful professional theatre company.
The education, training, and hands-on experience our apprentices take part in is invaluable and informative, and makes them more marketable to other professional theatre companies upon their completion of the program.
The Acting Apprentice Company is a group of professional artists whose mission is to bring exceptional theatre to the people of Georgia in every way possible. They are a fearless ensemble of multifaceted theatre artists who work in all aspects of Georgia Ensemble Theatre - you can find them performing in our main stage productions, behind the scenes running crew, in the box office, teaching classes, and performing daily in our Theatre for Young Audiences tour, which serves more than thirty thousand students each year.
