(New Student Performances)

NewStew encourages incoming freshmen and new transfer students to jump into performance mode by participating in one of four shows created specifically for them. NewStew Performance Projects welcome incoming students to the Columbia theatre community while showcasing their abilities to everyone in the department.

Production basics:

  • Production casts 14 to 20 actors.
  • All roles are similar sizes, and are as race and gender neutral as possible.
  • Each show runs about 45 minutes.
  • Rehearsal period runs three to four weeks.
  • Performances run for three to five days in the Classic or Getz Theatre.
