Ensemble productions focus on the development of the actor through the production process. Each project features a healthy dose of instruction at the onset before moving into rehearsals for the workshop production. Ensemble productions are scaled back to keep the emphasis on the process, with actors taking an active role in the development of the production's set, costumes, lighting and/or props. They are performed free of charge as a community service, and are opened to the public.
