Through intensive production programs and master classes, participants will dig deep into the techniques and practices and experience all the onstage and offstage worlds of a theatre performer.
Teen Ensemble is for high school students and recent graduates ages 14-18. Through intensive production programs and master classes, participants will dig deep into the technique and practice of the backstage world of theatre. Students will get hands-on experience putting their skills to the test through performance and technical theatre challenges. Whether they are a technician or just venturing into the backstage world, there’s a place for everyone! Ensemble members should expect to challenge themselves to grow and learn, celebrate their talents, and collaborate with peers and professionals.
Teen Ensemble-Tech Troupe: Explore lights, sound, scenery, paint, props, and more as we go backstage this summer! Participants will work with a professional Technical Director to bring our summer shows to life while learning new skills and exploring their technical interests. No experience necessary! This is a full-day program offered each week.
The Brooks Studios and Stages Program provides participants with a variety of activities and spaces that no other local camp can equal. Participants will have access to our 270-acre campus. The newly constructed Center for the Arts opened its doors to students, faculty and staff for use on October 30, 2018. The $28 million facility has transformed the school, bonding the visual, musical, and performing arts together and placing them on display at the center of campus.
Performances, teaching, and community gatherings have a spacious, comfortable home in the theater, with 387 seats. Its stage connects to a scene shop and a 1,200-square-foot Black Box theater, which provides flexible teaching space and an additional performance venue. A costume shop, changing room, and green room are also included.
Ensemble rotates through acting, music, and dance each day. In these time blocks, students collaborate with one another, professional instructors and a teen intern team to learn their lines, notes, and choreography. There are breaks built into the day (including some outdoor time during lunch) to allow students to re-group and socialize. At the end of the day, students participate in tech time where they gain skills in technical theatre including costume, props, and lighting.
