The Araca Project
Each year, the Araca Project is dedicated to producing a new play for a New York City theatre by emerging artists from 5 schools including Northwestern University. In 2016, three of the seven projects featured were created by Northwestern graduates. Applications are currently being accepted for 2017. Selected teams will pitch their projects in NYC on April 21, and a one-week Producing Seminar with selected industry professionals will take place in July as selected teams prepare their projects for theatrical premieres in the fall. The other schools that belong to the Araca Group include Syracuse University, University of Michigan, Florida State University, and Yale University.
Application deadline is Monday, March 13, and can be submitted through the Araca Project’s website:
