The Joyful Discipline of Craft
Theater is a calling, an art, a craft, a political act, a profession, and a business. At Juilliard, you will explore all these aspects of the profession — and more. You will develop your whole self, your imagination, your awareness of the world, and your personal and artistic point of view.
As an actor you will have a diversity of experience, exploring plays that span the classic texts of Shakespeare and Chekhov to new works, both in the classroom and on the stage. As a playwright, you will see your work come to life in readings by student actors, alumni, and guest artists. Together you will discover the humanity that connects people of all communities.
