The LEX is committed to education and creating outstanding opportunities for young people to learn the craft of theatre. High School Students may be eligible to apply or audition for Technical or Performance Apprenticeships. These Apprenticeships allow aspiring young performers and technicians the opportunity to work alongside professionals in the industry.
