Program 1

Lunt-Fontanne Fellowship Program

THE LUNT-FONTANNE FELLOWSHIP PROGRAM is a groundbreaking national program to serve American theatre. Every year, 8-10 of the most accomplished regional-theatre actors in the country are invited to participate in an a weeklong master class and retreat with a world-renowned and respected Master Teacher.  The immersion at Ten Chimneys includes eight days of intensive master class sessions, both in the historic rooms of the estate and in the modern facilities of the program center.  The experience also includes significant time for the Fellows and the Master Teacher to explore the Ten Chimneys estate and grounds together, engage in high-level discourse, and form a new national community.  (Additionally, the program offers the public and local artists a number of significant educational programs and public presentations.)
