Where the classroom meets the stage. We provide students with opportunities to put into practice the lessons they learn in our classrooms, from performance and technical skills to historical knowledge to the role of the arts in grappling with social and cultural change.

Collective Rage: A Play in Five Betties, by Jen Silverman
