PlayMakers Repertory Company at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill announces the fifth Summer Youth Conservatory, re-imagined for 2012.
The conservatory offers students the opportunity to work with professional directors, choreographers and musical directors at PlayMakers. Applications are due March 2; auditions are March 10-11.
The conservatory will feature three programs: Theatre Intensive and Theatre Tech for high school students, and a new program called Theatre Quest for middle-schoolers.
In Theatre Intensive, a cast of 25 actors will prepare for and perform the Tony Award-winning musical satire, “Urinetown: The Musical,” from July 19-22 at PlayMakers’ PaulGreen Theatre. Longtime company member Julie Fishell will direct, along with guest director Jeff Stanley.
Theatre Tech is an in-depth program in scenic, costume and lighting design. Classes begin June 11, with apprenticeship appointments beginning June 20. Tuition is $750, with scholarships available.
