Five-Week Summer
Conservatory Intensive

The Actors Conservatory (TAC) and Artists Repertory Theatre (ART) are joining forces by collaborating and sharing resources for the purpose of creating premier performance and educational departments. Expanded education programming will now be directed by TAC and co-produced with ART under the banner The Actors Conservatory at Artists Rep.


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 10 and 3pm.
