Click to Download PDF

 

The Summer Repertory Theatre Intensive (SRTI) is an exciting, unique program for students who are seriously considering a career or college major in theatre performance or production.  There are 2 tracks: Performance Track for those interested in performance and Production Track for those interested in theatre design/tech.  Students spend the afternoons in classes with West Michigan area theatre professionals and evenings in either rehearsal for one of the two productions (Performance Track) or working with our team of professional designers on the production elements for the two productions (Production Track).

SRTI students also participate in Masterclasses with industry professionals from all over the country, and attend a field trip to Chicago for a Masterclass with Actor’s Gymnasium and a production at LOOKINGGLASS THEATRE.

The two SRTI productions this year are: Little Women (play) and School of Rock (musical).

Students must be no younger than 6th grade and no older than 12th grade at the time of auditions.  PLEASE BE SURE TO READ THROUGH THE PROGRAM INFORMATION THOROUGHLY to understand the commitment SRTI requires both in terms of time and the high level of classroom & rehearsal expectations. While theatre experience & training is not REQUIRED to audition, those with little or no theatre experience may find this
program to be extremely challenging.


Program Dates: June 18-August 5
Tuition for the Performance Track is $450.
Tuition for the Production Track is $250.


A $50 non-refundable deposit is due by April 20th and the full tuition amount is due by June 1st.  A limited number of need based scholarships are available and applications can be requested upon acceptance into the program.
