Come join an active, renowned theater ensemble for our 2018-2019 season. SITI Company is seeking courageous and disciplined theater artists to join us for an eight-month immersive program focused on the art of theater making.

Work alongside SITI

Consider spending a year working alongside a celebrated theater ensemble. Designed to integrate you into the fabric of our 2018-2019 season, the SITI Conservatory does not aspire to be a traditional school. Instead, we invite you to become part of our company’s life for a year. Every day, you will train, rehearse, devise, and dialogue with SITI Company members. Conservatory artists form their own ensemble within SITI, creating independent new work for the stage. 

SITI Company is celebrating its 25th Anniversary season and is comprised of its original members, each of whom is uniquely qualified to teach Viewpoints and the Suzuki Method of Actor Training. We are committed to intergenerational, artistic exchange in which SITI Company members have lessons to impart and you have ideas to share with us. Come practice for eight months inside a seasoned, world-renowned company. Gain practical performance experience while being mentored by leading artists in the field.
