Emerging Artists Program Application Due

Paraphrase Productions is always looking for more ways to empower aspiring artists in the craft of theater. We believe that theater should never stop growing and changing and therefore we should never stop learning. We are excited to provide young artists training to become directors, producers, stage managers, and designers who will bring new ideas and inventive approaches to old techniques. The Emerging Artists Program creates a space for aspiring artists to further their craft in a hands-on environment.

The goal of the Emerging Artists Program is to train new directors, stage managers, producers, and designers to begin mastering the craft they are interested in pursuing. They will be given both creative freedom and constructive guidance as they bring their visions and ideas to fruition in a play production.
