Atlantic Acting School produces several full length plays each year, ranging from Shakespeare to modern works. Casts for these plays include the Atlantic’s third-year NYU students and Atlantic Conservatory students in their fifth semester. The School also produces several evenings of one-act plays each year for students at an earlier point in their training.
Recent student productions include Spring Awakening by Steven Sater and Duncan Sheik, The Children’s Hour by Lillian Hellman, Melancholy Play by Sarah Ruhl, and Metamorphoses by Mary Zimmerman.

Leaping between three eras in time, Ruhl explores the nature of politics, art, and religion through stagings of the Passion of Christ. Set consecutively in 1575 Elizabethan England, 1934 Oberammergau, and post-Vietnam War South Dakota, Ruhl investigates the evolution of this religious ritual while posing universal questions about humanity.
