Student Mentorships

Walking Shadow offers in-depth personalized mentorships to students who want to work with our professional artists. Each mentorship covers the span of a single production.

We currently offer opportunities in three fields: Stage Management, Directing or Lighting Design. Student mentees work one-on-one with a professional theatre artist to gain real-world training. Through hands-on work for the duration of the production, students will develop practical insight into the workings of a small professional theatre.

The mentor and project coordinator work to determine the needs, interests, and schedule for each student mentee. A small stipend may be available to help cover travel expenses.
