For over 50 years, Syracuse University Summer College has been giving high school students the opportunity to explore their artistic, intellectual, and professional passions while experiencing college life. Our 40+ programs reflect the richness and diversity of the majors and minors at Syracuse University.
The Acting & Musical Theater program at Syracuse University Summer College was created for talented students who have been inspired by the energy and sophistication of theater and musical theater.
The program develops the abilities of experienced performers who are serious about the field and eager to work hard. Our goal is to help students grow creatively through full-time, college-level theater training under the direction of acclaimed professional performers and teachers.
The 3-week program develops students' performance skills and provides a behind-the-scenes view of theater that combines music, drama, and dance. Students complete the program with improved audition skills and with experience in college level work in the field.
Classes aim to improve command of the student's body, mind, and voice, so that combined they become the expressive instrument of an actor.
Students take a trip to see at least one professional production with program faculty.
This class is currently limited to 24 students.
