Students in the Conservatory have the opportunity to participate in full-scale, live productions open only to Academy students. With the vast variety of Broadway productions available, a student can rapidly expand their skill portfolio and engage in music, dance, vocal and dramatic opportunities, all directed by professional actors and directors. Most shows also feature a trained choreographer and musical director, providing additional experiential opportunities to grow and develop technically.
Current Conservatory students also explore the depths of many dramatic styles in classroom instruction, from Shakespeare to the Greek classics, to Arthur Miller, Edward Albee and more. They will have the opportunity to experience dramatic classics and modern comedies, all within the safe confines of North Texas Performing Arts, often honing their craft through multiple performances in front of live audiences.
With so many NTPA productions, students in the Technical Theatre Conservatory have abundant opportunities to work under technical professionals to hone their skills and work their craft. In addition to onstage roles where they can gain the actor’s perspective, the Tech Theatre students can take on off-stage internships where they might create the lighting, sound, set, or costume design for an entire show! NTPA Conservatory students are also given first priority for internship opportunities.
