The Summer Theater Lab at Dartmouth

The Department of Theater's Summer Theater Lab consists of three distinct workshop/festivals:

Current students participate in all three festivals as part of THEA 65: Summer Theater Lab, a remarkable and unique academic class that immerses students in performance, production, playwriting, movement, and devised and collaborative theatre techniques. Students work alongside professional theater artists, observing and participating in the creative and collaborative process and taking advantage of a unique opportunity for experiential-based learning.
