Each year KSC offers opportunities for high school, college and university students to apprentice with Kingsmen's professional company during the Summer Festival. High school students can become junior apprentices performing during pre-show activities and in minor roles on the mainstage. Interns provide the core of the production and support staff of the Festival and are primarily drawn from the CLU student body. Apprentices are recruited nationally from college and university theatre programs throughout the country through a competitive audition process. Interns and apprentices understudy major roles and perform in mainstage productions.
