Summer Education Programs

The Summer Youth Conservatory is an opportunity for young people ages 8-18 to come together for a three week camp where they attend a variety of workshop style classes in acting, auditioning, voice, movement, technical theatre and more. All classes are led by the Temple Theatre staff and special guest instructors, who are all accomplished professionals in their field. The classes promote team work, discipline, self-confidence and learning to "walk in someone else's shoes". It all culminates in a full production in front of a live audience.

2015 will be the 14th consecutive year for the Conservatory. It has consistently grown and last summer, featured 95 students split between two separate sessions.

As usual there will be two sessions that are open to students of all experience level. For those camps, students will perform Disney's The Little Mermaid. Registration will open for both sessions on 4/8/15 at 10am in the Temple Theatre lobby. Registration forms that are received electronically or through the mail will be processed on 4/9/15 in the order they were received. Price for the Conservatory is $400, payable upon registration.

Conservatory Session I - 6/22 - 7/12/15

Conservatory Session II - 7/27 - 8/16/15

In addition to Disney's The Little Mermaid, we will be conducting a THIRD conservatory session that is available only via audition. Students will do a two week (7/13-8/2/15) Shakespeare Intensive that culminates with three performances of The Tempest at Depot Park.

Stay tuned for announcements about the 2015 sessions. A downloadable registration will be available soon. If you'd like to receive notifications via email, click here.
