School of Theatre Training | Conservatory
6th - 12th Grade | Offered at ImaginOn | Tuition $750 | 20-weeks
Placement is by audition only. Before auditioning, we expect students to have a working knowledge of given circumstances, objectives, tactic/beat shifts, etc. There should be evidence of this in their performance with some coaching from a Teaching Artist. Additionally, there is a need for work outside of class including script reading, written analysis, and extensive memorization.
Auditions for the 2023-24 season will take place on Sunday, April 30, 2023, from 12:30-9 PM.
Conservatory classes are for students looking to deep dive into their technique and training. While we use monologues, scenes and songs to explore technique in these classes, the emphasis is on developing a process that can be applied consistently to any work you may encounter in the future.
Click here to submit your information and materials, as well as choose an available one-hour time slot. All students should be dressed to move. During your audition:
- You will perform a short dance combination in large and small groups.
- New Works and Acting Company candidates must perform 2 monologues.
- Musical Theatre Company candidates must perform 1 monologue and 16-32 bar cut of a musical theatre song.

Please prepare a maximum of 90 seconds of material. If it runs longer, the timekeeper will ask you to stop. Be prepared to perform your monologue or song multiple times with re-directs from Teaching Artists. Candidates who are singing MUST bring sheet music for the accompanist.
