Tisch New Theatre + Our Mission
Tisch New Theatre is an avenue for students to work in all facets of the theatre: performance, management, direction, production, and other technical and design aspects. TNT is committed to developing and presenting technically and ideologically ambitious works with the intent to teach, challenge, and synthesize the artistic efforts of the Tisch Community and NYU’s undergraduate student body.
Educating, entertaining, and empowering artistic minds is at the heart of our mission, exemplified in our presentation of musical theatre as a tool of storytelling. Our organization empowers its young artists to hold leadership positions with the caliber of professionalism they will possess working in the industry. TNT is also dedicated to fostering artistic growth in all NYU students, offering a safe environment for learning and personal development.
Tisch New Theatre is dedicated to making theatre that reflects the diverse student body of NYU. Our organization crafts a theatrical space to implement our artistic mission with integrity. We are committed to the promotion of equity, inclusivity, and diversity.
Our organization is intrinsically democratic. We believe that theatre is a monumental force of change, that we as artists are endowed with the responsibility of telling stories that present a fulsome and effective response to issues facing our community, and that our art belongs to both the theatre makers and the audience.
By being a part of TNT, many of our alumni have gone on to work in various areas (producing, management, design, and performing) on or with Hamilton, Hello Dolly!, Avenue Q, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, Mean Girls, Sunday in the Park with George, Dear Evan Hansen, The Book of Mormon, The Muny, City Center, Berkshire Theatre Festival, Manhattan Theatre Club, Broadway.com, Telsey & Co., and many more!
What is Our Spring Production?
In accordance with Tisch New Theatre’s new mission statement, we have curated a season that seeks to uplift the voices of a range of artists and embrace the varying identities of said artists. Through this original spring show, we hope to create opportunities for both artists and performers to express themselves by inviting them to compose and perform music that highlights their individual identities, from their personal background to their racial or sexual identity.
This production is a virtual experience that will be developed across the fall and spring semesters. The concert will feature actors and singers performing these original songs, placing an emphasis on the collaborative and educational experiences of learning from one another throughout the process. The show's name and date will be announced November 23, 2020.
