Act, dance, and build foundational skills in dramatic and musical theater at Cornish this summer! Mornings begin with building core acting skills, a foundational element in all aspects of theatrical development. Afternoon electives explore costume design, combat and dance, or opportunity to explore other electives in Music, Theater, and Film.
Summer@Cornish Theater program is designed to give young talent the experiences in acting and scene production with a taste of what it takes to create a full production.
Theater: Acting Fundamentals for Theater and Musicals
A fundamental acting education supports the ability to be successful in any career in musical theater, theatrical plays, and performance production. In this four-week intensive, teens will explore the world of the character through work on sensory awareness, physical involvement, imagination, and communication. Beyond any single production, teens will build a foundational knowledge of the theater. At the end of four weeks, discrete work highlighting learned skills as an actor, scene development, and musical scenes, will be shared with families in an informal setting on a Cornish stage.
”This process made me want to pursue a Theatre degree at Cornish.”
Afternoon electives can be chosen to build an all-day, 4-week experience with morning foundation courses, or be taken as a free-standing class. All electives run either Monday & Wednesday, or Tuesday & Thursday from 1-4 from July 10 to August 5. Upon registration, choose one foundation course and 2 electives. Electives can be mixed and matched, but must choose one M/W and one T/Th.
