Upper level students are encouraged to explore a variety of semester long processes offered. Opportunities exist for student to produce work as performers, directors, writers, devisors, designers, and producers and in theater management.
Under the guidance of professional artists, guests and mentors we create a network of process, feedback and support that serves as a bridge to the world beyond studio walls. We currently produce over 60 students productions and commission 5 professionally-led new plays and musicals each year.
The commissions, also known as our MainStage productions, are often co-produced with our Playwrights Downtown Resident Companies and other theater companies based in New York City.
