New Work Development
Risk. More than anything, that’s what developing new work involves. If you’re an artist interested in the risks – and rewards – of new work development, click here to learn more about why and how we do it.
Our education programs have been on quite a growth curve. To keep up with demand, we sometimes contract with independent, professional teaching artists for our classroom residencies, community programs, summer programs, and after-school programs. Learn about our current Teaching Artist Fellowship.
We love our work, and we consider it an honor and a privilege to encourage others to pursue professional paths in theater for youth, the arts, and/or the nonprofit sector.
