Apprentice Program

Casa Mañana’s Apprentice Program is for the most dedicated young performers ages 14-19 in the D-FW area who aspire to careers in the theatre. The young actors who audition and are accepted have the unique opportunity to advance their professional training by performing in an all-youth production of a musical backed by the full resources of Casa Mañana. Now in its eighth year, participants in our Apprentice Program have attended or been accepted to such prestigious universities and training programs as Yale University, Carnegie Mellon University, Webster University, Otterbein University, The Neighborhood Playhouse in NYC, and Baldwin Wallace University.

For production, education and theatre administration internships: Internships are year-round and applications are accepted on a rolling basis. For departments and application instructions, CLICK HERE.



An exhilarating and riotous look at one of our nation’s founding rock stars, Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson reinvents the life of our seventh president. Created by Michael Friedman and Alex Timbers, Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson begins with the President’s early days as a child on the wild frontier and follows his steady climb from military strategist to populist rabble-rouser to President of the United States. With a raucous blend of outrageous comedy, anarchic theatricality and an infectious score, Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson encourages audience participation and rocking out. It’s a night about politics you actually won’t want to miss!

This show is suitable for audiences ages 13 and over.
