Junior Conservatory (Grades 6-8)

Looking for a fun, educational experience for your middle school student? TheatreWorks' Junior Conservatory is the place to be this summer!

We understand that it can be difficult to know where junior high school students can go during the summer--too old for camp, yet too young for high school level programs. Not to worry: TheatreWorks' Junior Conservatory is just the place for 6th-8th grade students to learn the craft of theatre on a more advanced track while still having a blast during their vacation!

By training with professional teaching artists, our Junior Conservatory students acquire the skills they need to train for high school theatre classes, as well as the New Works Conservatory. Our Junior Conservatory students take next-level classes in acting, playwriting, dance, and have a blast creating their own play which gets showcased on the final day.

Sound like a fun time? Then join us!

Junior Conservatory will take place July 14 - August 3, Monday - Friday (9am - 3pm) at Jordan Middle School.
