About

ARTISTIC DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMS

The Vineyard’s Artistic Development Programs are at the heart of our mission, providing ongoing, supported opportunities for emerging and established artists to create new work and take creative risks. Through readings, workshops, residences, and developmental “lab” productions, we tailor our programs to best serve the needs of artists and their work and to guide projects at all stages of development. Many of the plays and musicals we help to develop go on to full production on our stage or at other theatres in New York or around the country.
