Join our community of nearly 3,500 alumni.

NTI alumni are spread throughout the United States and the world, with very strong communities in major theater and entertainment cities such as Chicago, New York, and Los Angeles.

NTI has nurtured the careers of diverse theater artists, including: award-winning actors Jennifer Garner (Dallas Buyers Club, Alias), John Krasinski (The Office), Josh Radnor (How I Met Your Mother), and Jeremy Piven (Entourage); directors Greg Allen (The NeoFuturists), Jeremy B. Cohen (Playwrights’ Center), Erica Schmidt and Rebecca B. Taichman; playwright Adam Bock (The Receptionist); producers Susan Booth (Artistic Director, Alliance Theatre) and Barry Grove (Executive Producer, Manhattan Theatre Club); and many more. 

Our alumni organization, RiFRAC Theater Collective (based on the NTI motto: Risk. Fail. Risk Again.) is dedicated to gathering the vast array of alumni from the National Theater Institute into one network where all can connect, share knowledge and resources, garner deeper support for projects, and ultimately enhance individual success from the strength of the group as a whole. The organization was founded and is run by NTI alumni.
