Since 1985, Vassar College and New York Stage and Film have been proud partners in the Powerhouse Season, a unique collaboration between two world-class organizations. The season is known for being the springboard for new stories that go on to theaters across the country and around the world. For six weeks every summer the Powerhouse Season brings fully-produced plays, musical workshops, and readings of works-in-progress to the college campus. In all, more than 200 professional artists come to Powerhouse each season and bring to life 20-25 new works. Simultaneously, the Powerhouse Theater Training Program is in session, giving aspiring theater professionals a chance to immerse themselves in acting, directing, and playwriting. The program’s Training Company also offers free to the public performances throughout the season. Nearly 30 projects developed recently by Powerhouse have had or will soon have major productions including the 2016 Tony Award-winners Hamilton by Lin-Manuel Miranda and The Humansby Stephen Karam, as well as: The Wolves by Sarah DeLappe and Junk by Ayad Akhtar (Lincoln Center Theater); A 24-Decade History of Popular Music by Taylor Mac (St. Ann’s Warehouse & International Tour); Hadestown by Anaïs Mitchell (Broadway); The Homecoming Queen by Ngozi Anyanwu and The Great Leap by Lauren Yee (Atlantic Theater Company); etc.
