Project Development Programs:
Resident Artist Program
Open to alumni of all Directors Project programs, the Drama League’s new Resident Artist Program offers project funding, rehearsal space, professional mentorship, administrative support, and community engagement for professional directors and their chosen collaborative team to develop new works for the theatre. The program is process-oriented, and does not require a finished or completed project as its end point. However, it is designed to support a project’s final stages of development in order to prepare it for a future production.
Alumni Artist Residencies will take place in our StudioLab, the Drama League Theater Center’s new workshop space. The StudioLab is equipped with basic lighting and sound equipment, and can accommodate projects that will function well in a rehearsal or workshop environment. It is not a theater, nor is it intended to be. If your project needs the technical resources (and seating capacity) of a fully-functioning theatre, this is not the program for you.
*Please note, for 2013 we are not accepting Musical Theatre projects, although submitted projects may involve music.
The Resident Artist Program includes:
- 150 hours of rehearsal space at the Drama League Theater Center
- $5,000.00 of Residency Funding
- Professional Mentor for the project, selected by the Resident Artist in consultation with The Drama League
- Dedicated Workspace – Computer with WiFi, Conference Room Use, Fax/Copying Facility, Telephone, etc.
- Applicant must be an alumnus/a of a Drama League Directors Project program in good standing.
- Each selected artistic team is required to give back to the profession and the theatre community by presenting two (2) Creative Community events [to the public] during their residency. Creative Community events are free and open to the public, and can include (but are not limited to) open rehearsals, presentations of material, classes, lectures, workshops, readings, or other project-related activities.
