Study in the center of American theater, New York City, where new plays and musicals are created, tested, and showcased and new talent is sharpened, challenged, and celebrated. Our campus is a short subway ride from Broadway, Off-Broadway, and off-off Broadway, providing opportunities for young theater artists to witness the wide range of what it means to be a professional in this competitive field. The King’s College hosts actors, directors, producers, stage managers, and agents who speak about what they do and how they do it. We also create networking opportunities with Christian theater artists in NYC who understand the transformative potential of live theater.
