Theatre Ensemble Summer Program for Grades 6-9

In the intermediate theatre ensemble summer program, you will study acting, movement, and vocal technique, and apply these skills while rehearsing and presenting a public performance at the end of the session.

Below are examples of past instructors; 2017 faculty will be announced in the spring.

Program length: 3 weeks
Program dates:
June 24, 2017 to July 15, 2017
Tuition: $5,402
Age range: Students currently in grades 6-9

Registration for this summer 2017 program will open later this fall.

This program focuses on the fundamentals of drama, storytelling, collaboration, and personal expression. Instructors guide students through a process of "devised theatre," that involves a variety of acting, movement, voice, and improvisation exercises. The result is a fully realized, student-invented stage performance in which every student performs a featured role.

Each day, you will have four hours of rehearsal and an acting technique class. You'll round out your experience with one elective class, which may be in theatre, or you can use the opportunity to explore another art form. View list of elective class options.

Audition Requirements

Prepare two monologues from published plays of your choice and submit these as two (2) video files containing one (1) monologue each. One monologue should be comic and the other serious, and each should be 1-2 minutes in length.
