The Thousand Islands Playhouse hosts a seven-day residency for theatre artists developing works for the stage. This intensive experience is free of charge, and provides artists with studio space, a writing accommodation, and innovative workshops with award-winning creator/performers.
Participants will also be provided with one-on-one dramaturgy with their chosen mentor as well as grant writing support for their project. This unique seven-day experience will culminate in a public presentation of excerpts from the works-in-progress. We are open to accepting applications from both established and emerging artists.
