Crew Apprenticeship Program (CAP)


All student performers must successfully participate in a Crew Apprentice Program (CAP) production either before or within one calendar year after being cast in a production for the first time. Apprentice opportunities are available on a first come, first served basis.

All CAP experiences average 30 sessions and include required build sessions (16) in addition to ALL load-in sessions (10) and ALL strike sessions (4) for one production. If a student does not complete a CAP within the appropriate time frame, they are not eligible to audition for subsequent productions. All students are welcome to be part of multiple stage crews but do not need to participate in the CAP program more than once in their four years at New Trier.

PLEASE NOTE: We still believe the CAP program is a valuable experience, but the program is on hold until after the 2020-2021 school year.
