ARTISTS IN TRAINING
Christ Wesleyan Theatre Productions is a ministry of Christ Wesleyan Church. Its motto, “Performing Arts on a Mission”, was formulated to communicate the bigger picture behind the ministry. We strive to present some of the best Arts performances in the Susquehanna Valley, while helping people to know God. We believe that’s what we were created to do, and the Arts offer an incredible opportunity to accomplish this goal.
The ministry, however, should not be limited to its current leadership and potential. We firmly believe we have incredible talent and vision in our youngest of participants. This program, Artists in Training, was designed to invest in students who are aspiring to be actors, directors, stage managers, singers, technicians, and leaders in the Performing Arts community.
Artists in Training is an internship-style opportunity with a flexible format offering a unique and custom experience for each participant. Examples of opportunities:
An opportunity to shadow the directors, sharpen skills, and direct certain elements of rehearsals/performances. Will experience securing rights to a show, budgeting, auditions, casting, managing rehearsals, and much more!
