Learn to navigate life as a New York theatre professional. Live in the city and take the subway to train and perform with artists from Tectonic Theater Project, a renowned professional company. Explore the city, from Brooklyn to Manhattan, inside and outside the theatre district, on your own and with your classmates. Take in a full range of theatre productions, from mainstream to fringe.


Life as a Theatre Artist

How do artists collaborate to produce and stage a theatrical work? How can theatre-going inform one’s own work? What do artists need to know about the business of theatre? And what does it take to make it in New York?


Synthesize Academic and Experiential Learning

Work with an award-winning theatre company for a week of intensive study and application, culminating in a workshop presentation in a professional rehearsal studio. Get insiders’ takes on the business of theatre, and see shows running the gamut from on to off to off-off Broadway. Learn to negotiate city life and its complex social and cultural environments.


This program directly connects students with New York theatre artists, creating opportunities to build networks and friendships. Students become part of the theatre world and gain an insider’s perspective. With this early, supportive immersion, students gain the confidence to live, work — and compete — in New York.
