Mentorship Program

The Third Rail Mentorship is a ten-month training intensive designed to give emerging theatre artists hands-on experience in the day-to-day life of a professional repertory theatre.

Mentees work alongside Third Rail Company members in both the rehearsal room and the administrative offices, gaining experience in all aspects of creating, producing, financing and marketing a show. Throughout the year, mentees participate in weekend-long intensives, led by Third Rail artists, each focused on a particular skill such as clowning, collaboration, the viewpoints, voice, or the business of theatre.

Third Rail Mentees are true members of the Third Rail family, and we are grateful to have their energy, their enthusiasm and their passion with us each season! If you would like more information on the program, please contact Rebecca Lingafelter at
