Imagination Stage

Training & Performance

As students mature and gain greater facility in their craft, Imagination Stage takes them from technique to production. Conservatories and other intensive courses offer advanced training for upper middle and high school students that culminates in a final performance. Ensembles provide high-quality performance opportunities in the Christopher and Dana Reeve Studio Theatre or The Annette M. and Theodore N. Lerner Family Theatre.

Performance Ensembles

Ensembles jump straight into the rehearsal process with a focus on performance and production.

Key Details

  • Programs span one or two semesters in length and meet two to three times a week for rehearsals.
  • Previous acting/musical theatre course work and/or summer production experience is recommended.
  • For more information, please contact Nikki Kaplan, conservatories and ensembles liaison.
