SPCPA’s Theatre Department offers students training geared toward the serious aspiring theatre artist. Using a wide variety of both traditional and cutting-edge techniques and methods, students are guided in their education by working artists who help them realize their potential. The Conservatory’s training is modeled on college-level B.F.A. acting programs, and as such, graduates of the Conservatory’s Theatre Department transition easily into arts programs at post-secondary institutions. Each semester, students take an acting class which focuses on their overall artistic growth, two courses that address the development of the student’s vocal and physical instrument, and a Theatre Studies course that offers them a scholarly perspective on the art form. Students have multiple opportunities to share what they are working on in class in formal and informal settings.
