The Teen Conservatory is an opportunity for students 13-18 years old to audition for the opportunity to participate in advanced theatre training with professional artists. Students work with Gulfshore Playhouse staff and with guest artists from throughout the US and rehearse and perform many different styles of theatre. Students do not need to have previous theatre experience, but must be highly focused, have a passion for the performing arts, and exhibit a facility for working with others.

Fall/ Spring Teen Conservatory students learn acting technique, perform classical and contemporary theatre, attend Gulfshore Playhouse shows and special events, and go behind the scenes to learn about the workings of a professional theatre. The Spring 2018 Teen Conservatory students have been selected.

The Summer Teen Conservatory is an intensive musical theatre program that will take place from July 9 – August 3, 2018. Auditions will take place in February 2018.

Students interested in auditioning should prepare 16 bars each of an uptempo (fast song) and a ballad (slow/ story song) from published musicals.

Students must bring:
1) sheet music
2) a photo of themselves

Stay tuned for audition and show details!
