Where should you study?
Juilliard Drama is dedicated to preparing 21st-century actors and playwrights to tell, with clarity and passion, imagination and artistry, diverse stories that speak to the truth of the world in which we live.
As an actor, you will develop your capacity to bring body, voice, and spirit together in ways both personal and transformative, while exploring plays that range from the classic texts of Shakespeare and Chekhov to exciting new works, both in the classroom and on the stage. As a playwright, you will have the opportunity to continue to develop your own distinctive voice while acquiring a stronger command of dramatic structure and to see your work come to life in readings and workshops with student actors, alumni, and guest artists.
Together, you will discover and reveal the humanity that connects people of all communities.
