Conservatory Level Summer Camp
For rising 9th graders – first year of college.
*This production is PG-13 and contains some mature themes and language.
The Conservatory Theatre program at PAA is our top level program, appropriate for serious, experienced high-school students who want to take their acting, singing, and dancing to the next level. The Conservatory Theatre program is different from our standard high school theatre programs. Students are required to participate in a rigorous audition process. Not everyone who auditions will be cast. We expect Conservatory Theatre students to bring a professional level of effort and dedication to each rehearsal and a higher degree of learning and technical application to performance. Through the PAA Conservatory Theatre program, students will gain a level of experience that will prepare them for college theatre programs and beyond.
Conservatory Audition Information
This is an advanced level, conservatory program and students are required to audition for a part. Between 25 & 30 students will be accepted into this program. Previous fully staged production theatre experience is required. The auditions are modeled after professional auditions with acting, music, and dance sections. Please come prepared with a 16 bars music selection showing vocal range, a short (1 minute monologue), and be prepared to dance. Auditions will take place over 4 – 6 hours. Students are requested to stay for the entirety of the audition time. Due to the audition requirements, tuition refunds will be made for students who are not assigned a part. For voluntary cancellations, our cancellation policy will apply.
