The Brown/Trinity MFA Acting and Directing Programs are dedicated to training total theatre artists who will possess the technical skill, creative imagination, and intellectual bravery to be leaders in the profession and the field. We offer a unique focus on cross-disciplinary study and collaboration; actors take Directing studios, directors study Acting, and all of our students take at least one year of Playwriting. Rigorous classroom training and extensive performance experience provide a course of study that combines the best aspects of conservatory training with the practical experience of a three-year relationship with a professional theatre.
