Student Workshop Performances

Student workshops are designed as advanced study experiences, providing laboratories for nascent work. They provide opportunities for student writers, directors, and performers to develop ideas and get them on their feet. Workshops focus on language and performance with minimal technical production.

Performances are free and open to the public, although some require a reservation.
