‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍Railtown Lab‍‍‍

Railtown Actors Studio is proud to present Railtown Lab, an initiative created to give artists a platform to launch new works and stretch their artistic limits. Artistic Director John Cassini provides guidance and support for the artists to engage their work among peers while emphasizing the importance of the creative process. The Lab is curated by Anthony Shim, who hosts resident artists to workshop in-house projects. Focus is on traditional and non-traditional rehearsal techniques, and mentored and collaborative dramaturgy, with a goal of presenting the work for invited audiences. The Railtown Lab was originally created by Anthony Shim and Bryan Demore.
