When are applications open and due for the 2024/25 PATP?

The 2024/25 PATP application deadline has passed. Check back in early 2025 for information about the 2025/26 Season.

How do I apply?


Go to the Program Options page and select the apprenticeship you are interested in applying for from the accordion menu at the bottom of the page. Follow the link below, filter jobs to Seattle and click Seach. Click on the apprenticeship you're interested in applying for and read through the description, minimum requirements, and application materials needed for the apprenticeship(s), then click the "Start Your Application" button to begin your application.

I applied for the 2023/24 PATP and want to be considered for 2024/25. Do I need to reapply?

Yes, applicants who applied for the 2023/24 PATP will need to reapply to be considered for 2024/25 Apprenticeships by the Monday, May 27 at 4 p.m. PST deadline. You can submit the same materials from your original application or submit updated materials, if preferred.

Will 2024/25 Apprenticeships be virtual, in person, or a hybrid model?

Apprentices should expect to be onsite. Some work from home may be offered.

What are Seattle Rep’s COVID safety protocols?

We will be updating this webpage with updated COVID protocols for the public. Specific COVID protocols will apply to staff and Apprentices that work within Actors’ Equity Association (AEA) union spaces and with union artists.

Are there acting Apprenticeships?

No, we do not offer acting Apprenticeship opportunities.

I’m not available for part of Seattle Rep's season. Can I still do an Apprenticeship?

Starting/ending dates vary by department and depend on the season, so please ask about the timeline for a specific program if this is a concern. But most Apprenticeship contracts are full-time (40 hours per week) for up to 43 weeks, with some sabbatical time. See the "Duration" section of our Program Options page for some general guidelines for each Apprenticeship's contract period.

Can I get academic credit for this Apprenticeship?

If Apprentices wish to receive academic credit for their time with us, it is the Apprentice’s responsibility to make arrangements with the sponsoring institution. Academic credit is up to the discretion of the participant’s college or university. Seattle Rep will provide the sponsoring institution with any necessary reports or evaluations.

Is housing provided?

Unfortunately, we are not able to provide housing for the duration of the Apprenticeship. Apprentices will need to arrange their own housing. The PATP Coordinator can assist with providing resources, but ultimately, the Apprentices will be responsible for their own accommodation.

Do PATP Apprentices earn paid vacation or sick time?

Apprentices will receive paid accrued sick time, holidays, 5 personal days, Comp tickets and ORCA/parking benefit. However, they will not accrue paid vacation time or receive additional staff benefits, regardless of if they are full- or part-time.

Should I expect to receive a confirmation email that Seattle Rep received my application?

Yes, you will receive an email confirming receipt of your application.

When should I expect to hear back about my application?

For the 2024/25 PATP, Apprenticeship supervisors will schedule interviews with their top candidates by mid-June 2024 and make offers by the beginning/middle of July 2024. All applicants will receive notice by the end of July 2024.

Can I talk to recent Apprentices about their experiences at Seattle Rep?

Yes! Contact us and we can put you in touch with some of our recent PATP participants. Don’t worry if you don’t get an immediate response—it just means we’re busy!

What is it like to live and work in Seattle?

Check out our Life in Seattle page for sample monthly expenses for an Apprentice, information about our location on Seattle Center campus, and more.

I don’t see an answer to my question. Who do I contact?

If you have any questions about the application process, please contact our PATP Coordinator. Note that, the closer we get to our application deadline, the busier we’ll be, and we cannot guarantee a speedy response. Thanks for understanding!
