Together, performance, writing, and production students will focus on a central theme to conceptualize, write, design, and perform an original theatrical piece. This piece will combine the students’ own material with texts taken from the work of well-known writers.
PAY WHAT YOU CAN!Stages recognizes the need for accessible educational programs; No one will ever be excluded from The Young Actors Conservatory based on their financial capacities. Additionally, we recognize that in order to provide Houston youth with the quality of arts education they deserve, fiscal investments in the arts and arts education must be made by our community. Arts education has an intrinsic value. Each student will take the skills they learn down whatever future path they choose. Families choose to pay whatever is comfortable for their circumstance, whether that be the full tuition amount ($840 HS / $300 MS), zero dollars, or anything in between. No questions asked. All financial arrangements will be kept confidential.
