Clark Theatre Conservatory

Clark Conservatory began in 2016 to meet the needs of our eldest performers. Our 15-18 year olds wanted to be challenged and respected as the young artists they had become. It was clear that their desire to grow had exceeded what Clark was offering them, and thus the Conservatory was born.

Clark Theatre Conservatory offers students the opportunity to be a working artist in a fully functioning theatre company. Our students are mentored by award-winning, industry professionals, but all company members are equals – student artists work side by side with adults artists with full respect and trust. Clark Theatre Conservatory offers a more complete acting training, anchored in the belief that growth as an actor and growth as a human being are synonymous. Students gain tools and techniques to better engage their imagination, analyze text deeply and accurately, and to create rich, specific characters.

Clark Theatre Conservatory will perform as part of Clark’s season each year and offers:

The Conservatory is a fantastic way to build resumes for college applications and on-the-job training that will put students ahead of their peers in this competitive field.

Once students have been accepted into Clark Theatre Conservatory they remain members until they age out of the Clark youth program.
