This year we are proud to partner with St. Mary's College for an intensive four-week Summer Shakespeare Conservatory! Aimed at rising 6th through 12th graders, the Conservatory at St. Mary's College offers an immersive theater experience rooted in passion for artistic exploration and excellence, in a wonderful new site full of spacious, light-filled classrooms, plenty of outdoor space, and a well-equipped theater.

Students will spend the morning playing and creating in a wide variety of theater disciplines, taught by working theater professionals, and afternoons are spent in rehearsals. The experience culminates in a Shakespeare performance at the end of the program.

This year's summer conservatory at Saint Mary's starts on July 8th and culminates in performances on August 2, 2019.

Sales for the 2019 summer Conservatory have closed.  Ticket Sales for the Conservatory Performances will open in July.
