The Premise Spend one month immersed in training that sharpens your performance skills, deepens your artistry, and expands your understanding of theater as a practice and art. You’ll work closely with exceptional faculty, all theater professionals, who push and inspire you toward your strongest performance yet. Discover and develop you own artistic voice using newly-learned tools that inspire rigor, confidence, and artistic freedom.
Modeled after the renowned UArts undergraduate program, students choose between a musical theater and acting focus. All theater students spend mornings sharpening their skills in core areas including movement, voice and speech, and dance. The tracks go their separate ways in the afternoon, applying those core techniques to either acting or musical theater tracks. All students create new work in UArts’ Summer Institute’s unique Work Generator, where small ensembles create original theater pieces.
This renowned program’s rigorous methods are the ideal training for college auditions and conservatory training.
