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. Thanks to generous donors who underwrite the program, there is no participation fee. Since its creation in 2010, 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.



America’s most notorious lovers and bank robbers take the country by storm in this compelling adventure. At the height of the Great Depression, Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow went from two small-town nobodies in West Texas to America’s most renowned folk heroes and Texas law enforcement’s worst nightmares. Fearless, shameless and alluring, the Tony-nominated Bonnie & Clyde is the electrifying story of love, adventure and crime that captured the attention of an entire country. This show is suitable for mature audiences.
