Professional Arts Training Program
Seattle Rep's renowned Professional Arts Training Program (PATP) has been preparing theater artists and administrators from around the country for over 35 years.
Our PATP Apprentices are bright, diverse, self-motivated individuals with basic training and experience in theater and the performing arts who are committed to strengthening their skills and talents. They are effective communicators with an enthusiasm for community building and self-discovery. And they go on to work at the country's top organizations (including right here at Seattle Rep).
Apprentices undertake responsibilities as members of their teams, contribute ideas, participate in department and staff meetings, and complete projects under the guidance of their supervisors. They also participate in professional workshops and seminars, which provide contact with theater staff, guest artists, and members of the Seattle arts community. Staff members guide the work of each Apprentice to help prepare them for a career in professional theater.
The 2023/24 PATP deadline has passed.
