Fostering Artistic Exploration in the Performing Arts

In February 2014, Guild Hall debuted the John Drew Theater Lab (JDTLab), a workshop devoted to fostering East End performing artists and cultivating audiences for their work. The mission of JDTLab is to support actively-engaged performing artists by providing the helpful resources of the John Drew Theater to further them along on the journey of their creative process. Participants in the JDTLab will receive access to the theater and its rehearsal rooms as well as the support of Guild Hall’s administrative and production staff to present a one-night showcase of their work. Artists selected for the series will also receive a modest honorarium and a travel stipend to help bring in out-of-town collaborators.

Most JDTLab programs are presented free of charge to the public at 7:30pm on select Tuesdays.


Individual directors, musicians, playwrights, choreographers, actors and singers as well as local performing arts companies are welcome to submit a proposal to Josh Gladstone, Artistic Director of the John Drew Theater, for consideration in the series.
