ACT ONE High School
Professional Training Program
Our High School Professional Training Program (“PTP”) provides students with lifelong skills and confidence that will serve them throughout their life, whether they choose to pursue a career in theatre or not! ACT ONE offers a supportive environment that values every student’s contribution to the creative process. We seek to develop a strong ensemble of actors who believe in themselves and in the possibilities of others. This program is divided into two semesters, Fall and Winter/Spring.
During the fall semester, students develop and apply their musical theatre skills through a combination of classwork and performance. With our small class sizes, students are afforded the opportunity to study technique, text, vocal work, and physical work individually. The fall semester also features a cabaret workshop in which students collaborate to create an original show that they perform at the end of the semester. Curriculum includes:
During the winter/spring semester, students further develop and apply their skills as they rehearse and perform a fully staged musical. We offer flexible rehearsal scheduling to accommodate the busy lives of our students. Because of this, our high school students are able to rehearse and perform in their own local high school productions as well.
