about the winter intensive


Imagine YOURSELF performing your final presentation on the York's Off-Broadway stage! Family, friends and theatre professionals will be invited to attend. Spend part of your winter break in New York City training and performing at an award-winning Off-Broadway Theatre!

The York Theatre Company is one of the few theatres in the world dedicated to developing new musicals as well as rediscovering forgotten musical theatre gems.

The York's Musical Theatre Training Program draws from its vast network of connections to New York City's most successful theatre artists as teachers and guest artists. It offers the unique opportunity of classes taking place in an actual Off-Broadway theatre near the heart of New York's theatre district.

These classes are for serious theatre students currently enrolled in college and are led by York's Associate Artistic Director, Michael Unger.
