               for emerging actors -

The Barr Hill Players is a training intensive and artistic fellowship for the warrior artist. Established in 2015, The Barr Hill Players selects a summer ensemble of passionate actors to partake in a week of ensemble-based training in Meisner Technique, Viewpoints, mindfulness, and wilderness skills in the highlands of Vermont. For the first time, the 2024 summer intensive will take on a tuition-free, fellowship approach and will be followed by a live, workshopped staged reading at La MaMa ETC in New York City.
