HCT Summer Theatre AcademyHale Centre Theatre will be offering a Summer Theatre Academy for high school students beginning Summer 2017. This intense week - filled with workshops, master classes and auditions - is geared toward students who are serious about pursuing acting as a college major or career.
The 2017 Summer Theatre Academy will be held August 7 - 11, 2017. Auditions are scheduled for Saturday, June 17, 2017 from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. The audition/registration form is available at the left of this page.
Classes will be held 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. The cost is an estimated $195, which will cover the week's instruction, resumes, and of course, the all-important HCT T-shirt. If the student would like to get a headshot, it would be offered at a discounted fee.
In order to ensure enough time is spent on working with each student on an individual basis, we will limit enrollment to 40 students.
Students will attend classes taught by local theatre professionals in Voice, Movement, Improv, and Musical Theatre. They will also participate in scene and monologue work in both contemporary and Shakespearean styles. Guest speakers, such as agents and directors will be available to offer students feedback and expertise in their fields. A professional photographer will be available for headshots, students will be given instruction on compiling quality monologues and scenes for their acting book, and time will be spent on polishing each student's resume.
The whole week will be spent working towards having a complete and well-rounded audition for scholarships, college admissions, etc. On Friday, students will perform for a panel of judges of agents, producers, directors and professors.
Admission to the Academy will be by audition or recommendation by the student's high school drama teacher. All applicants will need to fill out the application form provided. Recommendations can be emailed to Dave Tinney at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Auditions for 2017 will be held on Saturday, April 29, 2017. If you have any questions, please call Tracy at 801-415-2304 or Dave Tinney at 801-415-2313.
