Each summer, students from across the country meet to mount three productions with professionals within the industry in a one-of-a-kind experience. They work as a traditional company, each member participating in all aspects.


What Are People Saying About

The Steadfast Tin Soldier

“I want to thank the cast/crew for your hard work on Tin Soldier. How amazing to be a part of something that is bigger than yourself, something that has the power to influence someone’s heart. Your courage and artistry has given me if nothing else hope. Hope in the future of Theatre and its power as an art form that influences many people, just like myself that are so blessed to be able to see it. Thank you again, So great to see people who live out in their lives what is so loud in their hearts. Don’t ever let anyone tell you what you do is meaningless, they’re just afraid because you are changing the world.”

“I walked out of the Long Center into a different world - a brighter world of more possibilities - I needed that - thanks to cast and all involved”
“I just want to emphasize how timely this message is. To me, the community, and the world. SERIOUSLY. I wish every one could see it.”
“I left the theatre feeling like I could do anything, that I could do great things . . not only that I could do these things but that I SHOULD”

I loved being able to work not only at The Long Center, but to be there with such great people... who all LOVED what they were doing.
