  Apprenticeships | Fellowships | Design Assistantships


Asolo Repertory Theatre’s Career Development Program is designed to provide real world experience to recent college graduates to prepare them for a career in the arts and non-profit sectors.  Participants have come to Asolo Rep from as near as our own back yard and as far away as Europe. Training under the guidance of our exceptional staff in a supportive, professional environment, Asolo Rep's Career Development Participants are fully integrated into our team, collaborating with professional staff members for hands-on work experience within their disciplines. In addition to the training and experience participants receive while performing their primary duties, they also have the opportunity to interface with professionals and attend training presentations from other departments of Asolo Rep, giving them a broader exposure to the many different facets of a professional theatre.
