Take a look through the National Theater Institute brochure! Founded in 1970, NTI's credit-earning theater intensives — taught by industry professionals and master teachers — train actors, singers, directors, dancers, designers, playwrights, and composers in comprehensive training. Graduates leave NTI with the skill sets to produce, write, direct, and act in their own work, as well as create their own path in the industry.
FACULTY NTI brings master teachers and industry professionals into your classroom. Often you’ll see the work of your faculty on Broadway, off-Broadway, at regional theaters, and on film and television in the same semester. You will spend 10 hours a day working with these professionals, building skills, expanding your range as an artist, making connections, and gaining valuable mentors.
