Guest Artists

Seminars and workshops with distinguished visiting artists play an important role in the foundation of the curriculum. Guest artists expose the student to a wide range of theatrical styles and methods. Guests may facilitate a master class, a lecture or demonstrate as part of a required class or work in extended residency with the students of the program.
