The Williams College Summer Theatre Lab is an opportunity for current Williams students as well as returning alumni professionals to work in a theatrical environment free from commercial and critical pressures. The Lab’s goal is to nurture projects that foster creative experimentation, artistic risk-taking, and the collaborative process.
