Since 2000, Geva Theatre Center and the College at Brockport have enjoyed a joint venture that enables Geva's guest artists and educators to teach classes the Brockport.

At the same time, the collaboration provides opportunities for students to gain hands-on experience with professional actors and directors at Geva.

Geva's Director of Education, Skip Greer, says "this is a great opportunity for Geva to come into classrooms of students who want to make theatre their career. Our relationship with the Brockport has proven to provide a vital rung to our educational programming ladder. Coming in contact with the Brockport students revitalizes our artists and helps us to fulfill our mission as a leading regional theatre."

Frank Kuhn, past chair of the Department of Theatre says "our relationship with Geva Theatre Center has infused a special vitality into our program. " The addition of internships allows students to be a part of professional theatre - both on-stage and off.

Under the agreement, Geva professionals teach at the Brockport, and students intern at Geva, Geva's Directing Fellow directs an annual production at Brockport, and theatre students enjoy increased opportunities to attend Geva productions in Rochester.

In addition, Geva guest artists and resident professionals participate in a lecture series which are free and open to the public.
