We’re bringing back this popular event- 2 weeks of networking, industry panels, and opportunities for emerging directors to actually direct on an off-Broadway stage.

WE CAN’T DO IT ALONE.

 

We depend on the generous contributions of others to help us keep working, to produce and tour our mainstage productions, to send artists out into the communities, to hire teachers for our adult education programs, and to keep the lights on. Every contribution helps!
