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.

Teaching Artists

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.

Internships

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.
