Offered Session 1: June 28th - July 11th, 2015
Do you love theatre, performing and attending shows? Would you like to study theatre at college as a way to prepare for a wide variety of career paths? The Marist Summer Theatre-Performance Institute offers you an intensive 13 day introductory acting course on the beautiful Marist College campus. This program teaches you college-level acting techniques while introducing you to the broader higher education experience. Mornings are filled with acting lessons, games and rehearsals, and afternoons are spent learning the roles of theatre artists-actors, directors, designers, playwrights and producers. The program includes seeing live theatre, both locally and with a trip to Broadway with a backstage tour (as available.) If you love theatre, you will love immersion in all aspects of this program—working with other actors, applying performance skills, studying college level course material and attending productions.
Upon successful completion of the Summer Theatre-Performance Institute, each student earns three college credits for the Marist College course ENG 227 Acting I. Acting I is a required course for all Marist students studying in our academic theatre program.
