Studio 4 is comprised of mixed grades, depending on the class. This studio holds advanced classes which have prerequisites and/or teacher placement requirements. Our Studio 4 artists further deepen their skills and learn about additional applications to real-world theatrical experiences. The idea of historical contextualization of the theatrical art form is added to the learning in classes and production, encouraging the students to reflect upon how what they are learning exists in a longer timeline of theatre practices around the globe.
At the end of Studio class sessions, there is an opportunity for sharing their work with their community of adults and fellow students.
In the summer, there is a Teen Conservatory Program, which places high school students (grades 9-12) in a two week professionally-modeled musical theatre rehearsal process, culminating in a fully produced production performed twice in front of an audience. The materials used for this program are more challenging in vocal, text and dance requirements, and the rehearsal includes historical information about the origination of the musical and its creators, and immediate application of new skills into the process.
