Program Dates: August 15th – 21st , 2017
This August, the Drama League offers an exciting, immersive and rigorous program for college-aged actors and directors. This industry-focused, week-long intensive provides you a unique opportunity to retreat from city distractions and focus on your artistry under the guidance of professional Master Teachers (to be announced soon).
SPTI prepares aspiring actors and directors for a career in the professional theater industry while providing the rare experience of concentrated theater-making, surrounded by unparalleled nature. Share meals with industry professionals and build artistic relationships that will last a lifetime.
Participants will first meet in New York City for a Professional Industry Day, including panels and seminars with industry professionals, and take in a Broadway or off-Broadway performance.
The following day, the cohort departs the city for the inspiring serenity of Stump Sprouts Retreat in Hawley, Massachusetts. There, you will have the opportunity to hone your technique and craft, without the distractions of the city and everyday life. You will participate in whole-group Master Workshops including Classic Text Approaches, and The Audition Room (From Both Sides Of The Table), as well as break out workshops specific to the Actor and Director tracks.
Finally, you will have the chance to implement these new techniques and approaches, working in small groups to rehearse and present a site-responsive scene of classic theater on the final day of the retreat.
