The Barrow Group Apprentice Program is a year long work-study program. Classes start in September and run a full 12 months, culminating in and industry showcase the following September. Training begins the end of August. The program is geared for New York actors looking for ongoing training in scene study, monologues, on-camera film & TV, Shakespeare and script analysis. Classes are taught by Artistic Directors Seth Barrish and Lee Brock as well as other Barrow Group Master Teachers. Performance opportunities include a monologue showcase, a self-produced reading series and an invited industry showcase.
The Barrow Group Work Study Program is for students who may be more suited to enrollment in individual classes, but who plan to move on from one class to the next for a minimum of one year. There are no industry showcases in this program, although students may perform in readings.
In addition to class work, Apprentices and Work Study students gain valuable experience in running an award winning off-Broadway theatre company, meet other industry professionals and refine their artistic goals. Accepted students are required to work a minimum of 8 hours per week at the theatre in exchange for their class time.
