In these popular workshops, actors collaborate to explore and perform a full-length play.

Company members collaborate to create a full-scale production. Days are filled with physical theater; ‘specials’ classes on stage combat, clowning, and improvisation; and ‘Fun Fridays,’ when the entire Piper community plays group games or engages in a process drama!

Due to the performance nature of the program, students are expected to attend EVERY day.
