    Second Season provides students with the opportunity to produce their own work in a TDPS space.  We look for pieces in all states of development.  Your idea doesn’t have to be ready to be “fully produced” to be considered.

    This is an excellent opportunity to showcase that original dance piece you have been working on, or direct a play that you feel the department NEEDS to see, or do a staged reading of a play you are writing.
