Open Hand Theater


Would you like to be a part of a dynamic troupe that works and performs in a wide variety of professional settings?  Are you interested in the art of puppetry and performance for audiences of all ages?

Open Hand Theater is offering an apprenticeship for six people to work with us and train in the theater art of puppetry. This season the program will focus on creating individual "walk-about" puppet characters, and providing stage and cast support for our holiday production: "Amahl and the Night Visitors"

Open Hand Theater is a professional theater now in our 30th year. The theater has four program areas:

  • Performance
  • Education
  • Mask and puppet museum
  • Community

The Apprenticeship Program is designed with four components:

  1. Apprentices working together for skill building
  2. Individual artistic or educational projects for the theater
  3. Stage work and performance in productions
  4. Viewing performances and connecting with professionals in the field

This is an apprenticeship with modest performance honorariums with an opportunity for future staff and cast positions.
