About the Teen Apprenticeship Program
CCA began its first Teen Apprenticeship Program in 2019. This program aims to provide theatrical training for teens in the Columbia River Gorge. Its purpose is to create a supportive ensemble of skilled, professional teen collaborators who are knowledgeable in a variety of theatrical disciplines and ready to take on leadership roles within CCA Children’s Theater and other environments.
The program prepares students for future rigorous training in a college or conservatory setting, while allowing them to explore personal interests in theater and related fields.
