Since 1916, The Drama League of New York has been at the forefront of the American Theatre community, providing talent, audiences, and prosperous support. It is one of the nation’s oldest continuously-operating, not-for-profit arts organizations.
The Drama League was honored to receive the Excellence in Arts Education Award from the National Theatre Museum in 2006. The organization has received commendations and continued funding from the National Endowment for the Arts, the New York State Council on the Arts, the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, the Shubert Organization, and many more.
The Drama League creates transformative interactions between artists and audiences BEYOND the performance experience. We harness that fruitful engagement to vitalize the professional, personal and creative development of theater artists; to improve the quality of new work for the stage; and to imbue theater audiences with a richer, more informed experience.
