Students will join a professional staff and share their collective stories from all walks of life. In doing so, one, solid, unified piece of theatre is born. In order to make this happen, we need creative people of all types. This experience is about the creative process, and while the performance is an enormous part of our workshop, the focus is on the weeks of creation.
