This program gives you a taste of all your career options — both in the spotlight and behind the scenes. Dance, acting, improv, singing — you’ll experience it all. Plus, you’ll explore the technical side of theatre, including stage management, stage carpentry, wigs and makeup, wardrobe, and prop construction.
By the time you graduate you’ll know which role you want to play in this exciting industry and will be ready to go on to more advanced training.
