Academy students have the unique opportunity to immerse themselves into their own theater community while gaining valuable experience with a first-hand taste of performing at a professional venue.  Workshops include acting, dancing, vocals, set design, lighting design, costumes, and promotions.

Special thanks to our extraordinary guest instructors for participating in the 2017 Academy: Jon Lehrer, Mitchell Jarvis, Oleg Kheyfets, Gregg Goldston, Samantha Massell and Phil Wackerfuss.
