Company One’s professional staff and local artists teach master classes, which introduce to and deepen students’ understanding of every element of the production process, including Directing, Stage Management, Production Management, Fight Choreography, Dramaturgy, Technical Design and Front of House Management. In addition, apprentices receive classes on essential skills, which apply to the workplace more broadly, including Resume Writing, Communication, Financial Literacy and Budgeting.
