High School Intensives Full Day -Take 1, 2, or 3 weeks!
Our High School Intensives are for students who want an in-depth look at the many components that come together to create theater. While each week has a different focus, ensemble building and exploration of artistry is a constant theme. Students can choose between one, two and three weeks of intensive workshops that allow them to try out numerous performance and production techniques, led and taught by top theater professionals. Activities are structured both for young people who return to our theater camp year after year, and for those who are attending for the first time.
Please note: New and returning teaching artists + new and returning students = a unique opportunity for young people interested in all different aspects of theater. The “master class” structure of these three weeks invites young people with all levels of experience.
A 10% discount will be added if you sign up for all three weeks. Three Week Total is $1,282.50.
