Our students are essentially interns for a 10 week period that includes rehearsal, tech, previews and public performances at San Diego's Lyceum Theatre at the entrance of Horton Plaza during the summer months. Knowledge, discovery and real-world experience is at the heart of what our students gain through this groundbreaking partnership.
