The Waterwell Drama Program, in partnership with the Professional Performing Arts School (PPAS) delivers top-quality, year-round, in-school theater training to over 200 NYC public school students.

The program addresses the student-artist holistically and demands they develop both as an interpreter and as a creator.

Voice and movement work connect with scene study and devising; classroom learning supports rehearsal and performance projects; and everything is designed to be in dialogue with what’s going on outside the classroom – in their homes, communities and the world at large.

Drama Program faculty are full-time teaching artists, possessing master’s degrees in Acting, Directing, Arts Ed or equivalent professional experience.
