STC Sr. is our intensive, three-week conservatory for high school students interested in rigorous, professional training.  It involves classes in the mornings followed by rehearsals for a play in the afternoons (this year Antigone!).  Two performances of TBA will take place at Burning Coal on the evenings of July 28 & 29, 2017.

Last year, we  were joined by guest artists from colleges and professional theatres around the state.  Similar quality educators will be hired again this year!  Students will learn a wide variety of subjects and techniques in classes with guest artists from fine educational institutions and professional theatres like:

John Gulley, UNC Greensboro – Meisner
