"This intensive has reaffirmed my love for theatre and  proven to me that theatre is my path. Even over Zoom I was able to take away so much information and apply that to my work. I am so incredibly grateful for this experience!"

Throughout the program, students will be invited to engage peer-to-peer with one another, continuing theatre students, and incoming first-year Ithaca College students in comprehensive social programming as we, together with college campuses across the world, redefine the “residential” experience. 

"Through this program, I learned how to balance my life as a performer and a human being. I rediscovered confidence in my material and was taught how to approach material in new and exciting ways. I think I've found a lot more truth in my work as a theater artist and found out how to relate to characters in a way I hadn't been able to previously."

"It was exhausting and very full but I loved it. It led to a lot of personal growth and I am so much more comfortable going into the college audition process now."
