Overview

Whether you prefer to be on stage or backstage, Usdan’s robust summer theater program offers students a chance to choose from an array of performance and hands-on technical theater classes and work side by side with highly skilled theater professionals and instructors.

The dynamic hub of the Usdan theater program is the extraordinary Lemberg Drama Center, which includes an air-conditioned indoor theater, two outdoor theaters, rehearsal studios, and costume, prop, and set shops.
