Lab Company


 “I learned an extraordinary amount from this experience and am honored to have gotten to be a part of the Hangar family for the summer. The work that is being done is truly inspiring and I can’t wait to brag about all of the incredible Mainstages and other productions that I was able to witness in a two month period.”
-Dani Weiner, 2018

“I am so grateful that an inclusive program like the Lab Company exists for young artists like me to educate us about the professional world and provide us the space to be treated like professionals. No longer am I afraid to start my acting career!”
-Ben Diamond, 2018

“I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to train and perform and be in the Lab Company this summer. I felt part of a true company and the program bridged the gap between the world and training of theatre students to that of theatre professionals (though we are always students)”
– Anna DeBlasio

“This was the SINGLE greatest decision I have made for my professional career so far. The Lab Company has given me the opportunity to push myself – both as an actor, and a person – to the greatest degree. I didn’t just learn about acting. I learned what it means to be an artist.”
– Anastas Varinos

“This summer has been my dream summer. From working with artists from a wide variety of backgrounds, to acting in so many insanely different shows, to flourishing under the mentorship of industry professionals who have taught me too many life lessons to count, I am walking away from this experience as an infinitely better artist, but more importantly, a better human. I can’t wait to take everything I’ve learned this summer with me out into the real world.”
– Donovan Lockett

“Not only does the Hangar Theatre reside in a beautiful location with a great audience, but the experience of producing a show in less than 2 weeks is quite a rewarding experience for an actor looking to work in the industry. Working with different directors on a variety of shows while being able to strengthen your craft in class after 9 hours of rehearsal makes the Hangar unlike any other place.”
