STC newSTC 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 William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream!).  Two performances will take place at Burning Coal on the evenings of July 26 & 27, 2019.

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 such as: 

Jill Carlson, East Carolina University – Stage Combat
Ray Dooley, Playmakers Repertory – Auditioning
John Gulley, UNC Greensboro – Meisner 

If you are interested in technical theatre, STC may also be for you.  We need students interested in stage management, assistant directing, set design, lighting design and costume design.  If you aren’t a performer, but are interested in one of these areas, you too can participate in STC.  You will participate in classes with the other students in the mornings, gaining a foundation in acting, movement and voice production, then be assigned to work on our production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream during the afternoons.  You will receive professional oversight in your area during STC.  Performances will be held on Friday, July 26 and Saturday, July 27, 2019 at 7:00 pm at the Murphey School auditorium, 224 Polk Street, Raleigh.  NOTE:  All applicants will be admitted to the program.  Your audition, which will be scheduled following receipt of your application, is to place you in the perfect role in A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
