It's time to get to know our latest season apprentices! After all, these folks will be taking care of all your ticketing needs and creating their own artistic projects for you to check out, so it only makes sense that you learn a little about them. Up first we have Brandon Bate.
What were you doing last year?:
This time last year I had just started my fourth year of university. I was also just finishing up a one week run of “The Pavilion” by Craig Wright, and moving into the first rehearsals of “Crimes of the Heart” by Beth Henley.
