FOUR Albright seniors accepted to National Theatre Institute

Four Albright College students will spend the first semester of their senior year at the Eugene O’Neill Theater Center’s award-winning National Theater Institute, next fall.

Known as the launchpad of American theater, the Eugene O’Neill Theater Center is dedicated to nurturing new work and new artists. Its competitive, semester-long immersive residencies in Waterford, Connecticut allow students to work with master teachers to create theater.

Daniel Reyes (theatre/vocal performance co-major), Deandrah Rodriguez (theatre/vocal performance co-major), and Liam Sibbers (theatre/vocal performance co-major), have been accepted to join the National Music Theater Institute’s intense 14-week semester that involves 10 hours of theatre-making, seven days a week.

Ben Galosi, a theatre/arts administration co-major who directed Albright’s acclaimed spring 2024 performance of “Urinetown: The Musical,” has been accepted into the National Theatre Institute’s Advanced Directing program — also 14-week semester that involves 10 hours of theatre-making, seven days a week, but which focuses solely on directing.

Originating the process of developing new plays through script-in-hand staged readings, scores of projects developed at the O’Neill have gone on to full production at other theaters around the world including Broadway, off-Broadway, London’s West End, and major regional theaters. Artists who began their careers at the O’Neill include Meryl Streep, Jennifer Garner and Michael Douglas.
