We believe the best training happens when highly experienced professionals and hard-working students join together in their shared passion in a creative and supportive space.

The Spark Program takes your
training to the next level.

The Spark Program
offers a comprehensive training model. It starts in classes where foundational skills are learned. Spark students then implement skills in a professional production process where they perform alongside adult artists and continue their training through artist mentorship. Students are also encouraged to expand their skills resume through intensive opportunities where special interests can be explored.

Learn With Us in Classes

  • Conservatory Model
  • Small Class Sizes
  • Individual Pathways to Success

Students will experience various training methodologies, while exploring theory and developing foundational skills essential to a theater artist's success.

Beyond our standard classes we offer Spark Practicums which are classes specifically tailored to help students succeed on stage. These class curricula are customized for each associated production, to build on techniques and ideas that will be used in rehearsals and performances. To participate in these classes students must be registered for the associated production.  

Perform With Us in Productions

  • Multi-Generational Casts
  • Professional Mentors
  • Musicals + Innovative Productions

Students rehearse and perform alongside professional artists who share their insight, provide supportive coaching and model passion and professionalism for their artistic craft. 

Training doesn't stop just because we are in rehearsal. This is also the time to implement skills and concepts learned in Spark Classes. 

Students must register and audition to participate in Spark Productions. Learn more about our Audition Process and review our Casting Policy for more insight about Spark Productions.

Grow With Us in Intensives

  • In-depth Workshops
  • Guest Teaching Artists
  • Immersive Learning

Intensives are offered throughout the year to support our seasonal programming. 

Students are fully saturated in a specific subject matter. Allowing students to learn, explore, practice, and apply a technique or concept. Some intensives result in a workshop style presentation, some do not - this is dependent on the subject matter which varies from intensive to intensive.

“Show me a successful individual and I’ll show you someone who had real positive influences in his or her life. I don’t care what you do for a living — if you do it well I’m sure there was someone cheering you on or showing the way. A mentor.” — Denzel Washington
