Each year the faculty recruits actors, playwrights, designers, stage managers, and theater technicians to join the Rutgers Resident Company. For the next seven semesters, this special group of young artists will be guided by master teachers and invited professionals in the art, technique and practices of theater.
Students will study, perform, design and build seven to ten productions that are tailored to their particular skills and needs. These productions are presented in a number of venues that include a thrust stage, a Broadway-size proscenium, and a variety of unique theater spaces that affords the company an opportunity to experience the special connection between the project demands and the venues appropriate to the material.
The fully equipped shops construct and maintain scenery, props, and costumes, as well as providing sound and lighting support.
The Jameson and Little Theater venues explore modern or developed plays, while the Levin and Mastrobuono theaters are equipped to produce the larger classics.
