Five Week Adult Summer Conservatory Intensive

The Summer Conservatory intensive is a five-week program that explores the same core foundation of Conservatory style training that you would find in our Two-Year Certificate Professional Actor Training Program. Students will be mentored by master teachers who are also professional artists. Our mission is to provide comprehensive and rigorous actor training by engaging the mind, heart and spirit of the artist.

Whether you are curious about acting, an emerging artist, college-bound, a professional actor, or an educator interested in innovation and inspiration in the classroom, the Summer Conservatory Intensive offers foundational training, straight-forward technique, and individualized instruction.

The 2021 Summer Intensive runs from Tuesday, July 6th through Friday, August 6th, 2021. Classes are held Monday through Friday between the hours of 10am and 3pm.

Upon completion of your application, we will schedule an audition/interview with our Artistic Director, Beth Harper.

  • Acting Technique
