The Old Trout Apprentice Program!

This is a weepingly rare opportunity to apprentice with this company. If you have any interest whatsoever in puppetry, then you must audition to do this. For those who don’t know this company, you should. They are magic. The audition also seems equally amazing. Please audition, get it, come back to Toronto, and produce amazing puppet theatre for adults and children alike!

The Old Trout Puppet Workshop hereby announce their new Apprenticeship Program. Please circulate this announcement to interested artists. If your organization would like hard copies of the application to distribute, please call 403-508-4929.

We are looking for two artists, who would work alongside the Old Trout founders in the creation and performance of our newest show, Don Juan: the Greatest Lover in the World. The production will premiere in Calgary, AB March 24 to April 10, 2009 at Alberta Theatre Projects, then will tour across Canada until mid-June.

All training will take place in Calgary and the Apprentice Program will run from November 1st, 2008 to June 30th, 2009. Renumeration for artists will be $1500 per month plus per diems for tours. Please refer to the application attached for further details.
