There are very few opportunities for theatre artists to learn and experience the full spectrum of their craft: from concept to seeing their work on stage.Theatre InspiraTO offers two fully integrated programs for theatre artists.
The InspiraTO Academy gave me the tools to light a fire. I took an idea and was able to create play that was ignited by great performances and lit the faces of the audience. It was an experience that I will keep with me always. I met amazing people and learned so much. -Josh Downing (InspiraTO Playwright, 2015)
