Hayes Vocational is a talent escalation program supported by The Russell Mills Foundation that pairs emerging creatives with senior artists on each Hayes Theatre Co production. We’re thrilled to be able to offer these opportunities again in 2023, helping artists expand their practice and develop their skills in a professional environment.
