Drama

Evan Yionoulis

Where should you study?

Juilliard Drama is dedicated to preparing 21st-century actors and playwrights to tell, with clarity and passion, imagination and artistry, meaningful stories that speak to the truth of the world in which we live.

As an actor, you will develop your capacity to bring body, voice, and spirit together in ways both personal and transformative, while exploring material that ranges from the texts of Shakespeare and Chekhov to exciting new works—in the classroom, on stage, and also on film. As a playwright, you will have the opportunity to continue to develop your own distinctive voice while acquiring a stronger command of dramatic structure and to see your work come to life in readings and workshops with student actors, alumni, and guest artists.

Together, you will discover and reveal the humanity that connects people of all communities.

A glance through our last five years of projects will show a diverse array of writers, directors, and designers who have all contributed to our rich curriculum.
