Williamstown Theatre Festival Workshop: Alone & Alive

Williamstown Theatre Festival Workshop: Alone & Alive Directing Studio

Play development is a year-round activity at WTF. Every summer, the Festival supports new work in development by inviting artists to participate in workshops and residencies. Performances of these works-in-progress will be public and reservations will be required. Tickets are free, and will be made available in the coming weeks. Festival donors at the $1,000 level and above will receive advance access as a benefit of support, consider making a donation to the Festival today! Any remaining tickets will be made available to the general public the week prior to performances.

We’re thrilled to welcome the following projects and artists to Williamstown this summer.


July 18th -20th
Williamstown Theatre Festival Workshop: Alone & Alive
Written and Performed by Joel Waggoner
Directed by Brandon Ivie

A one-man-gay-existential-crisis-concert-sketch-comedy-variety-show-with-all-the-bells-and-whistles about figuring out who you are… without all the bells and whistles.

The next will be:

July 30th -31st
Williamstown Theatre Festival Workshop: Marcel On The Train
Written by Marshall Pailet and Ethan Slater
Directed by Marshall Pailet
Produced by Mix and Match Productions (Maxwell Beer and Mitch Marois)

Decades before Marcel Marceau became the world’s most famous mime, he joined the French resistance, saving Jewish children from the Nazis by smuggling them on a train to safety. This is the story of one of those train rides.

In addition to these companies, Kamilah Bush, John J. Caswell, Jr., Peggy Noonan, and Ellis Stump will join us as playwrights-in-residence this summer.
