Theatre & Drama Academy

2019 Theater and Drama Academy studentsThe Theatre & Drama Academy provides a hands-on opportunity to work with some of America’s best professional theatre artists/teachers at the new, and state-of-the-art, Walgreen Drama Center on the University of Michigan Ann Arbor campus. Students interested in performance receive a well-rounded, intensive experience that will give them preparation for a college career in the theatre. The Academy culminates in a performance in the Walgreen Drama Center’s Arthur Miller Theatre.
