Spring Break NYC

Welcome to the official website of the OCUNYC Workshop,

The annual Spring Break NYC workshop is hosted each year by OCUNYC. The 3-day intensive is open to any student at Oklahoma City University interested in the performing arts, and is available free of charge thanks to a generous donation from Ann Lacy.

We invite you to come to New York City during the week of OCU's spring break 2014. The emphasis of the workshop is to provide you with a safe environment to hone your craft, under the guidance of our incredible faculty of NYC theatre professionals. We hope that every student will take this opportunity to push themselves beyond what is expected of them everyday at OCU, and to try something new in a supportive atmosphere free from pressure and judgement.

Our goal is that this experience will serve as a springboard to further motivate you once you return to classes at OCU. We hope the workshop helps to give you a clearer picture of what to expect once you move to NYC.

Please continue to check back here as we release more details about the 2014 Spring Break NYC workshop.

Traving & Housing

While the workshop is free for all OCU students, participants are responsible for their own travel arrangements and housing accommodations. Keep in mind that all workshop participants are expected to attend the Mandatory Check-in / Orientation on Monday at 5:00. So please book your flights to arrive in NYC by mid-day on Monday.

We are happy to help Freshmen find housing for the workshop week. We have a large group of alumni who are willing to open their homes for students to stay on their couches and air mattresses. If you requested housing help on the Pre-Registration form and qualify as a Freshman, Macy Reeves (our Housing Coordinator) will be contacting you in the upcoming weeks.
