Listings are now being accepted for the Stage Directions Summer Study Directory
Stage Directions kicks off summer in January with the Summer Study Directory. The annual Directory is a compendium of all the educational programs available to actors, designers, technicians and everyone else in theatre, no matter their age. From summer camps for grade schoolers, to pre-college programs, to study opportunities for college students, to continuing education for professionals, if it happens during the summer, it can be found in the Summer Study Directory. And if your program isn’t a part of it, it should be! Organizations can submit their free listing for the Directory at trd.stage-directions.com/summerstudy.
