Be Bold: Study and Create Theater at Brown University This Summer.
TheatreBridge and Playwrights Workshop offer a connecting link between high school and college theatre and encourage a commitment to a life of creative engagement. The highly selective programs provide promising young actors and playwrights an opportunity to stretch their imaginations and skills as they create new work under the mentorship of established theatre professionals. Students work alongside the artists of the Brown/Trinity Playwrights Rep and the undergraduate Apprentice Company, and are encouraged to achieve their highest potential. Residential Advisors are carefully selected Brown undergraduates, who serve as mentors and role models to help students make the most of their time at Brown.
A Network of Opportunities
TheatreBridge and Playwrights Workshop provides numerous opportunities for interaction with students in both programs and with members of the undergraduate Apprentice Company, Brown theatre faculty, and other artists from the Playwrights Rep. in a variety of formal and informal settings. All students will have the opportunity to attend special workshops and Q&A sessions with Brown faculty and visiting artists, and participate in post-performance talkbacks.
In addition, teams of TheatreBridge and Playwrights Workshop students provide front-of-house support at performances of the Brown/Trinity Playwright’s Repertory Theatre periodically throughout the program, and that support sometimes requires that students make themselves available on a Saturday night. Otherwise, unless special events or assignments are scheduled, students use weekend time for research, rehearsal and relaxation.
