Events

colorful letters hang from purple hangerTry On Theater Days offer a welcoming introduction to theater making in the Princeton theater and music theater programs at the Lewis Center for the Arts. On three evenings, three times a year, the programs hold informal community evenings to encourage student participation in our student-driven season in any capacity. This new process replaces traditional auditions with group workshops and serves as an opportunity for students to find out about and get involved in non-performance capacities as well (such as stage management, design, sound engineering, backstage and so on).
