Burning Coal hopes to be able to do a live summer conservatory in 2022 for area middle school students from 6th through 8th grades.  Each year, the conservatory spends two weeks learning clowning, movement, voice production, theatre games and improvisation.  At the end of the two week period they present a work that they have created themselves using those newly learned skills.  All social distancing requirements will be strictly adhered to and a limited number of students will be accepted into the conservatory.
