This year, NTSA will be hosting Design Launch -- a series of workshops providing high school students with training and guidance from professional Broadway and off-Broadway designers. Our first workshop will be on Saturday, November 29 from 1-5 PM at A.R.T./New York's South Oxford Space (138 South Oxford Street in Fort Greene, Brooklyn).
At this month's Design Launch workshop, you'll watch a reading of The End of Side A, a new drama by Kendall Kaminsky (University of Houston '14), before engaging in a roundtable discussion with Patrick Rizzotti whose work has been seen on stages at Signature Theatre, HERE Arts Center, Prospect Theatre Company, Target Margin, and Florida Repertory Theatre. (Contemporary musical theater aficionados might know him as the mastermind behind the set for Ryan Scott Oliver's Jasper in Deadland last season.) We'll close out the session with an exercise created to kickstart your theatrical design portfolio. EdTA Thespians: this session will set you up for success if you plan on presenting an Individual Event in Design this year. You can register for the event using the form below. Space is limited to fifteen students so register today!
(HINT: If you've ever wanted to work as a designer with NTSA, this is a great chance for us to meet you and get to know your artistic work. We're currently on the lookout for student designers for our winter 2015 touring production and our summer 2015 mainstage production.)
