Collaboration with RVCC

Arts Access dramatists, Amy Myers and Paul Santo are ready to learn! During the months of July and August, Amy and Paul are studying theatre production at Raritan Valley Community College. This marks the fourth-year collaboration between the RVCC Theatre Department and Arts Access. This year’s class will provide Amy and Paul with valuable practical theatre experience for work both on and off stage.


The relationship between Arts Access and RVCC started back in 2015 with the intention of creating more community-based programs for the Matheny clients. Dennis Russo’s summer course has proven to be a great fit for our artists. Previous participants from Arts Access include Cheryl Chapin, Chet Cheesman, and Natalia Manning. Read more about last year’s class and the staged reading that wrapped up the summer in this insightful article.


Both Amy and Paul have been enjoying the class so far and have learned a lot! It will be exciting to hear their thoughts at the end of the class. Thank you to RVCC and Dennis Russo for helping us provide this opportunity to these artists.
