The Academy of the Company Theatre (A.C.T.) is a great first introduction to theatrical skills as students receive training in acting, voice, and dance through participation in a full-length musical production performed with a live orchestra. This is a tuition-based program. Sessions are approximately eight weeks starting in January and September and participation is by audition. Rehearsals are Monday and Wednesday afternoons, with extra rehearsals during Production Week (the week leading up to opening). There are generally three final performances plus one or two performances during a school day.
