2022 APPRENTICE TESTIMONIALS
This summer was my first experience working in a theater environment outside of an educational setting and I could not be happier to say I got to spend it with the Barnstormers! The sense of comradery and positivity that is promoted by management really makes it for me. I have never bonded so quickly with a group of people so fast in my life, especially in an occupational environment.
I learned so much, not only in my specific field, but in all aspects of theater. At Barnstormers, you get to meet and work with so many extremely talented people who are all so eager to do their jobs. It’s a wonderful place to make connections with people who work professionally in the industry. Living in Tamworth for the summer is a great perk of the job, and the theater itself is a very nice space to work in. It was so exciting to get to learn and grow as a technician during my time at the Barnstormers, all while working on the very high quality productions with the most talented group of performers and crew you could ask for.”
