Musical Theatre & Acting Intensives (7th-12th Grade)
Highwood's two-week acting and musical theatre intensive gives a small group of students, grades 7-12, the opportunity to mimic a professional theatre structure and prepare a full-length play or musical in a condensed, intense rehearsal process. Students will work with a professional Director, Musical Director and Choreographer (for the musical) to create, stage, and rehearse the piece.
Students in this program should expect to be challenged during these two weeks, but will grow tremendously as artists, critical thinkers, actors, and collaborators. This is a program for serious theatre students. Session One is the Musical Theatre Intensive, in which students produce "The Wedding Singer" - performed July 20 - 22. Session Two is the Acting Intensive, in which students will produce Agatha Christie's "And Then There Were None" - performed August 3 - 4.
Open to rising 7th - 12th graders
