Educating and empowering the next generation of theatre professionals
About the American Theatre Wing’s Master Class Series
ATW Master Classes provide rising creative professionals with exclusive access to advice, insight, and training from the titans of the theatre industry. Each class allows attendees to hear the many and vast ways to find your way in the business with each featured artist sharing their unique journey and path to success as a creative.
Each Master Class consists of a live and virtual component. Students are invited in person to participate in the Master Class as it is filmed for on demand release. All Master Classes are then premiered live on the American Theatre Wing’s YouTube channel during which time our instructor and participants join virtually for Q&A and conversation with viewers in real time.
The American Theatre Wing’s Master Class Series is produced with support from the Michael Stewart Foundation and the National Endowment for the Arts.
