Hubbard Hall Teams Up with The Drama League
Tuesday, Hubbard Hall Center for the Arts and Education in Cambridge, NY (Executive & Artistic Director David Andrew Snider) and The Drama League of New York City (Artistic Director Gabriel Stelian-Shanks, Executive Director Bevin Ross) announced a national partnership in support of directing residencies at Hubbard Hall and a significant expansion of The Drama League’s legendary Directors Project.
Every summer, The Drama League will bring theater directors, chosen in collaboration by The Drama League and Hubbard Hall, to Hubbard Hall’s campus in Cambridge, NY, to advance their craft for two one-week residencies, with full descriptions linked below.
“We are thrilled to partner with The Drama League on the Beatrice Terry Directing Residency and the Next Stage Residency to bring some of the best and brightest early career directors to our campus every summer. This collaboration will allow us to further support artists and the field at large while bringing great art and artists to our rural community. As we grow our partnerships, as with our long-term residency partnership with The Bushwick Starr, Hubbard Hall continues to grow into a world-class center for new work development,” said Hubbard Hall Executive & Artistic Director David Andrew Snider.
Gabriel Stelian-Shanks, Artistic Director of The Drama League, said of the new partnership, “As resources for theater makers become more and more scarce post-pandemic, it’s more crucial than ever for us, as a society to band together and support the creation of new plays, musicals, and performances that address the world we live in. Hubbard Hall and The Drama League are natural partners who are dedicated to the future of the field. We look forward to working together and creating extraordinary new theater pieces that will be enjoyed in Cambridge, in New York City, and around the world.”
THE DRAMA LEAGUE DIRECTING RESIDENCIES: The Drama League’s Directing Residency programs, including the Beatrice Terry Directing Residency and the Next Stage Residency, will continue in expanded, reimagined formats that expand the development from a one-week workshop to two weeks of development, both at The Drama League and at New York Stage and Film and Hubbard Hall Center for the Arts and Education, respectively. The deadline for the Beatrice Terry Residency and Next Stage Residency is March 1, 2024.
