Launch of new apprentice program targets creative youth

December 19, 2011

FABUM announced a new apprentice program for young artists in the Washington, D.C. area. The program will be a seasonal opportunity for emerging creative minds to participate in various artistic projects that the organization sponsors.

Jameson Freeman spoke to students at School Without Walls about the organization and its mission of presenting original works that explore human nature and individual journey. He then did a workshop on the audition process, had the students perform several scenes from a new play, before explaining FABUM's new apprentice program.

The first apprenticeship opportunity involves two never-before-seen shows that FABUM is producing as part of its "The Dolce Revolution Project" series. The plays, Lemons by Barry Eitel and Lost Belongings AKA The Facebook Play by Jennifer Berry, will be performed at local venues in late March, including D.C. Arts Center and The Arts Club of Washington theater.

Students will work directly with The DRP creative team to see a production process from the inside, observe and assist with rehearsals, attend the shows, and receive professional headshots for their personal marketing purposes as emerging artists.
