Hangar Drama League Directors

Every summer, the Hangar Theatre and the Drama League team up to give four future artistic leaders the extraordinary experience leading the Hangar’s Lab Company, producing the Wedge Series, and directing KIDDSTUFF productions. Applicants for the Hangar Drama League Directing Fellowship participate in a rigorous selection process that includes submitting portfolios, crafting vision statements, and interviewing with notable theatre practitioners. Once selected, the four Hangar Drama League Directing Fellows join an incredibly prestigious group of alumni, including Sam Gold (whose Broadway credits include The Glass Menagerie with Sally Fields and the award winning Fun Home, Rachel Chavkin (director of award winning musicals Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812 and Hadestown), Chadwick Boseman (star of stage and screen, may his memory be a blessing) and Hangar’s previous Artistic Director Michael Barakiva. This season, the Hangar Theatre and the Drama League are pleased to introduce Ithaca audiences to these four inspiring directors.
