The Wingspan Arts Summer Conservatory is a tuition-free, audition-based program for middle and high school students. Offering a true conservatory experience, this program combines both classwork and an in-depth rehearsal process culminating in full-scale theatrical productions.
The Wingspan Players is for incoming 6th-8th grade students interested in musical theatre. Students take fundamental performance classes and focus on large cast, ensemble-based musical productions. In past years, the Players have performed shows such as Shrek, The Wiz and Zombie Prom, among other beloved musicals.
The Wingspan Ensemble is for incoming 9th-12th grade students invested in broadening their theatrical skillset. Students take a wide variety of specialized classes, focusing on both skills building and exposure to the professional arts world. In production, Wingspan Ensemble students are cast in either a musical or a play. Show selections feature smaller casts, more challenging material, and offer more opportunity for student involvement in the creative process. In past years, the Ensemble has performed shows such as Merrily We Roll Along, Ragtime, Twelfth Night, The Heidi Chronicles and The Laramie Project.
