"After graduating from University of Ottawa, most people thought I should have stayed in the town which I studied in to capitalize on the relationships that I had built over there. But PT held out a different opportunity for me to explore and step out in faith into a location that I didn't know, but into a passion that I loved: Directing. Very few other places allowed me an opportunity to be an apprentice to professional directors where I could interact with them on a more personal level. My favorite experiences were participating in developmental script readings, learning to get over my fear of heights and to be a part of so many delightful plays during the season (2007-2008). Some of the opportunities that came out of the apprenticeship because of the amazing relationships that were built here were: sequential yearly directing contracts with Gallery 7 and a costume designing contract with Vancouver Asian Canadian Theatre and many more to come." - Joyce Chung
"The PT apprenticeship was a whirlwind of learning, experiencing, accomplishing, meeting, loving, succeding and failing. I learned so much in those months that will stay with me forever. Once you are in the PT family you are in for good. It took the skills I had learned in school and increased them, honed them and challanged them. I grew in my confidence as well as my practical experience. I would recommend it for anyone who is passionate about theatre and willing to give it everything they have." - Linsy Rotar
