An evening of theatre under the stars might sound like a pleasant escape from the rigors of daily life, but for Joy Clark ’14 and Erick Ogle ’14, the nights they spend treading the boards at the Livermore Shakespeare Festival, running from June 13 to July 20 at Concannon Vineyards, are the final steps in their Pacific educations.

Clark and Ogle are part of the Shakespeare’s Associates Apprenticeship program, in which college students from across the country hone their craft and work with some of the best actors and theatre artists that California can offer.

“We’re working with some of the top talent from across the country, and they love working with the students,” says Livermore Shakespeare Festival founder and producing artistic director Lisa Tromovitch, an associate professor and chair of the Department of Theatre Arts. “We are conscious that we are mentoring the next generation of professional theater artists.”
