So, how does this thing work?

The Program section of our OPPs Guide is arranged a few different ways, for your convenience: by Borough, Free or Fee, and by the focus of the program: Behind the Scenes or Performing

We've split things up into these so that you can find programs based on your specific interests, preferred location, and financial needs.

Why should you do a program at a theatre organization?


  • You can develop relationships with cool organizations doing exciting work in the city!

  • Programs are usually run by accomplished and enthusiastic teachers and mentors with lots of useful experience to impart.

  • You will meet other cool people with similar interests! You may find future collaborators or even life-long friends.


  • Some programs cost money. Which sucks. But the theatre organizations are not doing this out of spite--many organizations are strapped for resources and don't have a choice. In many cases, scholarships are available for programs, and sometimes your school may offer financial support as well.
