The Winter Youth Conservatory is open to upper middle and high school students interested in studying Shakespeare's language and performance style. Students learn how to break down and understand verse and imagery, mounting a full-scale production of a Shakespearean classic on the Temple stage.
Temple Theatre's Winter Youth Conservatory is designed to challenge as well as teach upper middle and high school students. The conservatory is centered on a play (usually classical in nature) and involves a section in teaching the "style" of performance, followed by rehearsals and finally the production. Unlike the Summer Conservatory, participants must audition for the Winter Conservatory and are then cast in specific roles.
The Winter Conservatory production is done in the early spring and is intended for those who are serious about intensive theatrical study and commitment. Past productions include William Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream, George Tabori's Brecht On Brecht and Romeo and Juliet to name a few from the past.Download the Winter Conservatory Scholarship Form here.
