Our summer intensive is a month-long program that takes place on Drew’s campus. High school students have the opportunity to participate in a full theatre production, getting firsthand experiences in acting, dance, design, technology and stage management, according to their interests. The plays are commissioned by professional, award-winning playwrights and are written specifically for our students, reflecting their interests and concerns.
Select students receive college credit for their participation and receive scholarships for tuition and room and board. They work closely with their mentors, who provide academic support throughout the program. Apply here.
Other students are eligible to participate in the program as part of Newark Works.
Drew University is a small, safe suburban campus located about 30 miles from New York City, in Madison NJ. The campus is easily accessible by NJ Transit train from Newark Broad Street and New York Penn Stations; the train stops in town about 5 minutes from campus.
