“I now approach theatre more as a profession than a hobby. Honors Conservatory taught me to be more analytical. Before, to learn a character in a play I’d watch the movie first and mimic the actor. Now I look for clues about my character in the script rather than imitating another performer.”

  • A Resume of your acting experience.

  • Two Letters of Recommendation (click to download form - or they are also included in link above) from people who are able to comment on your acting ability, work ethic, or other qualities that might imply readiness to undertake an intensive course of study.

Tuition for the 2020 Honors Acting Conservatory is $7,100 if paid in full before the program begins, or $7,860 if paid in twelve monthly installments of $655 from December 2019 through November 2020.
