EDIT: The application period for SpringboardNYC 2020 is now closed.
SpringboardNYC brings college actors into the epicenter of American theatre—New York City—in an intensive program that connects young talent to the knowledge, tools and connections necessary to become part of New York’s vital theatre culture.
An in-depth program happening in parallel to the Tony Awards, Springboard is taught by renowned members of the contemporary theatre. The Springboard curriculum includes workshops, seminars, master classes, and access to important work on Broadway and off. Springboard connects students to inside knowledge and industry players, creating major opportunities for young actors that put them at a professional advantage.
Springboard forges connections between fellow actors at start of their career, building a community of contemporaries for those new to New York and theatre’s professional realm. Here, students create their own community and theatre network built on the friendships they make. The program also serves as most young actors first direct contact with The Wing, initiating a lifetime connection to the organization and its extensive support.
SpringboardNYC is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the City Council and a one-time gift from the Atlanta Falcons. Scholarship funds are provided by the Michael Stewart Foundation and by Nat R. and Martha M. Knaster Charitable Trust.
