Workshop and performances are held at Short North Stage at the Garden Theatre

1187 N. High Street

Columbus, OH 43201

Collaborate, conceive, write, compose, choreograph, design and perform an original piece of theatre with music while working with professional artists and fellow students from around the country.

20 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.


Friday, July 19th; 8pm show
Saturday, July 20th; 2pm and 8pm show
