Each summer, junior high and high school students are given the opportunity to advance their skills in acting, music, playwriting, and movement. For grades 6-8, the Junior Conservatory is a two week program where middle school students can start to take their craft to the next level. For grades 9-12, the New Works Conservatory is a five week training ground for engaging in serious training for emerging artists. At our summer conservatories, we take your skills to the next level!
