Production work is central to advanced training at ETW. The production process enables the student to confront and solve the kinds of practical and artistic problems they will be faced with in their professional careers. We provide students with a wide variety of performance styles in which to work, including traditional and de-constructed versions of classical and contemporary plays, postmodern dance, new music, musicals, video art, autobiographical solo work, storytelling, original full length plays, comic improv, non-linear conceptual work, children's theatre, sound installations, staged readings of new plays, visual art installations, and performance art pieces.  Students are offered several avenues for production work: professionally directed studio productions; ensemble track productions, in which a group of ETW students work with a professional director and design team for a semester or entire year on the creation and production of an original piece of theatre; and independent projects, which are original works created and directed by advanced ETW students. We present an average of twelve productions a year. ETW upper level students may also audition for professionally and student directed productions produced by the Drama Department.
