Gibbons Drama NYC Theater Intensive Trip

The Gibbons Drama New York Theater Intensive is a five-day, four-night trip designed to be a deep cultural dive into both New York City and the world of professional theater. The trip aims to empower our students to explore the city beyond the typical tourist experience while also exposing them to what makes New York so essential to the theater community- its people, history, geography and, most importantly, the productions that make it the center of the American theater community.
