Summer Drama Programs

If you dream of being a professional actor, the Drama Discovery and Academy programs are for you. They're built for the most passionate, energetic, and motivated young artists and include studies in acting, voice, singing, dance, and movement. You'll live and work among ambitious and dedicated classmates and be taught by teachers who've spent their lives in the profession. You'll explore the actor's craft and learn how to work as part of a creative team. We'll challenge you physically, vocally, and imaginatively in a community where art is not just one of the courses, but the main course. For some, it's the first step in their journey to our world-class High School Program. For many, it's the most important, fulfilling, and exhilarating two weeks they've ever experienced.
