Description of the Fellowship:
Single Carrot Theatre’s fellowship program is designed to provide hands on experience to emerging theater artists, as well as an opportunity to have a working understanding of Baltimore’s premier ensemble theatre. The fellowship is a season-long program that includes administrative and artistic responsibilities. Single Carrot is dedicated to the growth of artists, and the fellowship has been created to introduce emerging theatre artists and administrators to the exciting and demanding world of ensemble theatre.
Next year, Single Carrot Theatre will be entering its thirteenth season as a company. Fellows work to fulfill SCT’s mission and support the SCT Ensemble. A fellow manages individual projects to support the operations of both the business and artistic workings of Single Carrot Theatre. Artistic assistantships or shadowing opportunities may be offered.
Single Carrot Theatre creates site-specific, community driven theatre. Single Carrot’s season includes three mainstage productions a year, three-five one-night only engagement events, and numerous education programs. Single Carrot also creates cross-sector partnerships along with every mainstage production. These partnerships allow our audiences to engage with communities and organization that connect our work to their lives in Baltimore.
