Thank you for your interest. The deadline for applications for the 2022/23 season has passed. Please check back in February 2023!

The Jean Murray-Moray Sinclair Apprenticeship Program is a paid job auditing experience for emerging artists and craftspeople to gain exposure to professional theatre work. Most applicants are recent graduates of post-secondary theatre training (within the past two years), but applications will be equally considered from those with other theatre experience who are looking to expand their knowledge, or a background in artistic disciplines outside of theatre who wish learn more and pursue a theatre career.

The Assistant Program is for early career professionals looking to explore and enhance their artistic practice in a job experience. Ideally, applicants would have at least three years of professional experience.

To apply for either program, you must be a Canadian citizen or landed immigrant and a resident of Manitoba. Your application should include the completed form, a letter of reference, a resume or CV, a written statement (see the application for specifics) and portfolio/supporting material for some disciplines. Full checklists for the application and details about each program are in the downloadable file.
If you have any questions or face barriers in the application process, please contact Ksenia Broda-Milian, Education and Enrichment Manager by email or phone 204 954 6413.

If you are trained in stage management and looking to begin your career as a CAEA/Equity apprentice SM, please do not apply here but instead forward your cover letter, and resume to Director of Production Russell Martin

Please note that we do not offer plawriting or acting apprenticeships. If you are interested in performing on Royal MTC stages, see our auditions page.  Haven't graduated yet? Check out our scholarship program!

Our apprenticeship fund is supported by generous patrons through a ‘pass the hat’ at one Mainstage production. We are deeply grateful for your support.
