Students in this program establish a firm foundation in acting through a series of exercises that will help you explore advanced techniques. This program emphasizes your development as a young actor and your connection to both text and scene partners. The session concludes with a showcase performance during which you will demonstrate your growth through monologues and/or scenes chosen especially for you.

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.
