By giving us a lens to our own experience, theater allows us to explore issues of identity, culture, and emotion. Many Western performances use elements of Greek drama to build characters and plot, and many Eastern shows include puppetry, mimes, and acrobatics to create a rich story. Whether you are passionate about socially progressive community theater in Kenya or participating in an internship with a Spanish theater group, we offer a range of programs that will help you develop your craft as an actor.
