The US Performing Arts Musical Theater Conservatory will be the center point of three weeks of training and rehearsal this summer! The faculty will teach, coach and rehearse the production which will be presented as a work in progress on the final day.
The Musical Theater Conservatory offers training in the musical theater forms that are prevalent today both on Broadway and in National Tours. Although its foundation is based on some of the classics of the musical theater, the conservatory develops the student's acting and musical performance and movement techniques in such areas as rock and roll, gospel, operatic and jukebox musicals. It is a conservatory that reflects the need for musical performance of this century in training the actor who can sing and the singer who can act. Approached with the same discipline and training that is expected of the working professional the Conservatory nurtures the young artisttowards their potential and then encourages them to go further to new heights. It not only trains the voice, the body, and the soul but also the intellect in terms of what musical theater performance is all about. Comprised of working faculty in the musical theater, the Conservatory will give each of its participants the training of a lifetime in one of the finest Theater Departments in the world. The Conservatory offers the student master classes with the likes of such artists as actors as Jeff Goldblum, JoBeth Williams, Ken Page (CATS), Karen Morrow (WHITE CHRISTMAS) and Sammy Williams (A CHORUS LINE)
