Fostering Artistic Exploration in the Performing Arts
In February 2014, Guild Hall debuted the John Drew Theater Lab (JDT Lab), a workshop devoted to fostering East End performing artists and cultivating audiences for their work. The mission of JDT Lab is to support actively-engaged theater-makers 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.
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.
