Youth Theatre's Conservatory is an award-winning training program for advanced high school actors. It is open to students who want to take their work to the next level. Accepted students will complete college-level training in Voice, Movement, Musical Theatre, Improvisation, and Shakespeare as well as electives ranging from Meisner to Stage Combat. In addition, Conservatory competes in state and national competitions and hosts master classes with guest artists from across the nation.
Although these young people are very talented, it is more important that they become great ensemble members that are generous on stage and off. These students make lasting friendships that go beyond the stage and Youth Theatre. We understand that high school students are very busy people. Most of our conservatory students play an instrument, participate on a school sports team, take AP classes, and are in their school productions, as well. They must manage to do it while making Conservatory a priority.
