From November 2022 until June 2023, Lunchbox Theatre will invite 9 emerging professional theatre artists to form our inaugural Associate Artist Company at Lunchbox Theatre, working and training in various offstage roles in our professional theatre environment. This paid program is a unique opportunity for promising artists from Calgary’s next generation of theatre practitioners to train with professional mentors on productions in the Lunchbox Theatre season.
A Director, two Designers, a Playwright, a Dramaturge, and a Production Manager will join Lunchbox Theatre starting in November of 2022 with the production of Home for the Holidays. These promising individuals will each serve as Assistants to the professional Directors, Dramaturges, Designers, Stage Managers and Production Manager working on three different Lunchbox Theatre productions from November 2022 until June 2023. The Associate Artists will form a cohort of artists who can learn from our staff and each other throughout the season through monthly group mentorship sessions, and will also participate in our Stage One Festival of New Canadian Work.
