An Educational Program with Professional Expectations

It’s an artistic home to train and take risks. Working alongside our nationally recognized acting company on and off stage, the five actors we will invite into the program this season will be offered an unmatched opportunity to enter the profession. Our specialty is practical experience that provides our alumnae with a competitive edge.
