Watermark Theatre is thrilled to embark on its third year of the Mentorship Project to continue training young theatre artists. This season, experienced professionals will train interns in the following departments; stage management, scenic art/properties, wardrobe, carpentry, and arts administration.
Watermark Theatre is a perfect training ground; small enough to nurture and large enough to have processes and policies in place. All sets, costumes and props are realized on site and production standards are high. Though there are many theatre training institutions in Canada there are very few internships available. Hands-on experience and training under a good mentor is one of the best ways to learn and grow.
