Chelsea Rep LABS provides Studio actors, directors and playwrights with monthly, outside-of-class forums wherein they may present respective work to other LAB members and faculty monitors for a more in-depth criticism and fine tuning of their craft.
Chelsea Rep Acting LAB meets regularly on the first and last Saturday of each month. The Playwriting LAB meets regularly on the second Saturday of each month wherein current and former Studio playwrights may hear their material presented in staged readings conducted by Studio directors and actors. In addition to the monthly sessions, Chelsea Rep LABS produce three annual festivals including staged readings of original plays and film scripts, and fully produced festivals of workshop productions that are student-written-acted-and-directed.
