Queens Theatre is excited to announce its new free training program specifically for early-career Deaf and disabled actors with its Theatre For All Initiative. The two-week, free program runs Sept. 16 to Sept. 28, and will include workshops on Acting for the Camera, Acting for the Stage, Movement, Voice, Improv, Auditioning, and Commercials. The program will culminate with a showcase performance for an invited industry audience.

Queens Theatre has brought together an excellent team of instructors, including Vincent D'Onofrio (Netflix's "Daredevil," "Jurassic Word," "Law & Order: Criminal Intent," "Full Metal Jacket"), Brigid Brady (Actor/Singer/Teacher, Broadway: The Phantom of the Opera, "Gossip Girl"), Christine Bruno (Actor/Teaching Artist/ Consultant, member The Actors Studio, "Law & Order"), Pat Shay (Improviser and faculty member, The PIT), Stephen DeAngelis (Producer/Casting Director) and Liz Eckert (Actor and Designated Linklater Voice Teacher). Additional instructors to be announced.

All workshops and events will take place at Queens Theatre, located in Flushing Meadows Corona Park. The program is offered as part of Queens Theatre's Theatre For All Initiative to advance the inclusion of people with disabilities in the performing arts, with support from New York Community Trust. 

"Our goal with this program is to support skill-building and to help actors cultivate relationships with their fellow students and with industry professionals," Queens Theatre Executive Director Taryn Sacramone said. "We are excited to spotlight these talented early-career actors and expand our own artistic family in the process."

Actors will be selected through an application process. Queens Theatre anticipates an inaugural cohort of 25 actors. TFA will offer both daytime and evening sessions. 

Gregg Mozgala, TFA Advisor, Actor and Founding Artistic Director of The Apothetae-a company dedicated to producing works that explore the disabled experience-believes such a program is long overdue. 

"If I could go back in time to the start of my career, I would want to be part of Theatre For All. Representation matters. Not only on the stage and screen, but in training environments like the one Queens Theatre has so painstakingly and passionately created," Mozgala said. "There is no other program like it in the country. Queens Theatre understands that truly inclusive theater is about reflecting the experience of ALL of us."

Save The Date! Gala 2018

Eva Ayllón

With a legendary voice that embodies the spirit of a nation, Eva Ayllón is one of Peru’s most enduring stars. She’s been called the ‘Tina Turner from Peru’ and the ‘Queen of landó‘ (a traditional Afro-Peruvian musical form) for her larger-than-life stage personality and fearsome dance chops. Infused with colorful sounds and flavors from the coastal plains of Lima, Ayllón’s music overflows with her country’s indigenous, African, and Spanish musical heritage in a style called música criolla, in which call-and-response, complex syncopation, and polyrhythms combine with sweet, melancholic melodies to create a unique and powerful sound.
