THEATRE “BOOT CAMPS”
Twice a year, during students’ winter and spring breaks, The Vineyard offers “Theatre Boot Camps”: for three full days, students come to The Vineyard and engage in intensive workshops led by Vineyard staff and professional theatre artists, exploring theatre skills and seeing professional productions in order to expand their understanding of theatre-making. Recent “Boot Camp” workshops include devising original work with Hunter Bell and Susan Blackwell, directing with Kate Whoriskey, acting with Joe Morton, dance and choreography with John Carrafa, as well as classes in improvisation, design, accents, puppetry, tap, and much more. Each “Boot Camp” includes a trip to see an off-Broadway or Broadway production, preceded or followed by a workshop with an artist working on that show. Students are provided with lunch and Metrocards.
