NEW YORK THEATRE INTENSIVES offers seminars and intensives in contemporary American theatre performance, new play development and collaborative art. Our flagship program is the six week summer conservatory where students from across the country join us in NYC to focus on the development of new work as actors, writers and directors. Our deepening course challenges participants to work across genre and in a collaborative format to find their own voices and their place in the collective.

Students study five days a week with master teachers from the ranks of the Ensemble Studio Theatre, write plays, do public presentations, publish their work and meet with luminaries from the world of theatre. Our guests have included David Auburn, Donald Margulies ( Pulitzer Prize winning playwrights), Jerry Zaks (award winning Broadway director), Billy Hopkins (casting PRECIOUS), Lois Smith (TRUE BLOOD) and lots of others.

Come join us!
