Theatre Ensemble: Create & Perform 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.

Program length: 3 weeks
Program dates:
June 27, 2020 to July 18, 2020
Tuition: $6,100
Age range: Students currently in grades 6-9
Priority deadline: 
January 15, 2020

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.
