The Mission

The Carmel Apprentice Theatre – come play!   
The Carmel Apprentice Theatre draws together theatre veterans coming to play that role of a lifetime, with apprentices curious to perform for the first time in their life. Fearless artists and shy apprentices will perform alongside each other to create great theatre, great community and great fun. 

General Information

You don’t have to audition to be cast in our shows! Just register and you can be a part of our show*. At Evaluations, you will have the chance to show us what you can do, and tell us what you would like to do in the show.
Rehearsals will generally be three or four days a week. Some set, prop, and costume work days will be scheduled as well (likely Saturdays).


*Previously, Carmel Apprentice Theatre was a tuition-based program. However, thanks to a generous grant from the Carmel Arts Council, the tuition fee to participate in our productions has been eliminated! Thank you for helping us give community members more access to our programs!

April 3 - April 12, 2020

   

Carmel Apprentice Theatre is pleased to formally announce the spring play:

Play On!

By: Rick Abbot

From April 3 – April 12, 2020, Carmel Apprentice Theatre will perform Play On! This is the hilarious story of a theatre group trying desperately to put on a play in spite of maddening interference from a haughty author who keeps revising the script. Act I is a rehearsal of the dreadful show, Act II is the near disastrous dress rehearsal, and the final act is the actual performance, in which anything that can go wrong, does. When the author decides to give a speech on the state of the modern theatre during the curtain calls, the audience is treated to a madcap climax and a thoroughly hilarious romp. Even the sound effects reap their share of laughter. 

Carmel Apprentice Theatre draws together theatre veterans and apprentices curious to perform for the first time in their life. Fearless artists and shy apprentices will perform alongside each other to create great theatre, great community and great fun. In keeping with the mission and tradition of Carmel Apprentice Theatre, registration is now open. We are seeking a diverse cast of 10 performers, including teens 16 and up. Registration will remain open through the launch and evaluations, which will be held

from Sunday, January 26 - Monday, January 27th. As with all Carmel Apprentice Theatre shows, if you register (while space is available) you’re guaranteed involvement in the show! The specific list of men, women, and ages will be determined by the director.  As specific slots fill up; you may be placed on a waitlist.
