Auditions for the 2023 Conservatory are now CLOSED.
Founded by Michael Kahn 30 years ago and now under the leadership of Producing Artistic Director, Jade King Carroll, the Acting Conservatory is comprised of the best young emerging artists from all over the country and is considered one of the premier summer training ensembles in America.
Who should apply?
The acting conservatory is drawn from a wide pool of applicants, from those who are currently enrolled in graduate and undergraduate training programs, to those who have recently graduated. Past Conservatory companies have run the gamut from undergraduates in their early 20’s through graduate and post-graduates in their early 30’s. Although exceptions are occasionally made, we ask that you be at least 20 years old at the time of the audition.
We strongly value and practice diversity and all roles are open to ALL ETHNICITIES.
What to Prepare
Please prepare two contrasting monologues or two contemporary monologues, 90-seconds each, and comedy is encouraged.

Does it cost anything?
No! All conservatory members receive a full scholarship, housing, and a stipend (if applicable).
