The 2023-24 season of Backstage Pass is currently full, but we are still accepting registrations to the waitlist.
Sessions begin November 2023. All students in grades 9-12 are eligible to register.
This vocational training program helps high school students set the stage for an exciting career behind the curtain in theater, concert, opera, television, film, corporate events, and more. Participants of the Backstage Pass program discover the ins and outs of each job, networking on their journey of learning to launch their careers and find future employment.
Over the course of this program, students will meet industry professionals, visit theaters and workshops, and build their skills through professionally taught, hands-on training sessions.
Sessions begin in November and will be conducted on Mondays from 4:00-5:45 pm. through May 2024.
Each student receives a $250 stipend upon their successful completion of the program.
