Apprentice Program:
The St. Petersburg City Theatre Apprentice Program is designed for youth ages 13-18 that has been ongoing since the 1970’s, and is the bridge between City Theatre’s six show Mainstage Series and the Acadmemy programming.  Apprentices receive training and experience through their involvement with the mainstage productions, which they then bring to the classroom as teachers and teachers’ aides in the Junior  Theatre, Children’s Theatre Workshop, and Summer Camps.
