The LCT Directors Lab is a developmental program for nurturing stage directors from around the country and around the world. It is a series of workshops, readings, rehearsals, investigations, roundtable discussions, and studio productions to provide young directors with an intensive study of their craft while fostering collaborative relationships among a peer community of artists.

The Directors Lab is geared toward professional directors in early career stages, is free of charge, and takes place over three weeks in early to mid summer.

The 2012 Lab will take place from July 9 – July 28. Applications for the 2012 Lab are now available above for download

Applications must be postmarked or brought to the theater by February 27. We will not accept emailed or faxed applications. All applicants will be notified of their admittance to the Lab on March 26 by email. We look forward to receiving your application!
