A major part of learning for students in theatre is becoming familiar with the work and styles of various artists. Because the theatre industry is such a "tight-knit"; profession, career networking is of utmost importance for young artists. For these reasons, we offer regular opportunities for students to interact with and observe visiting professional artists in master classes, artist residencies, and performances.
