Boston Conservatory at Berklee Musical Theater Acting Intensive


Online Session: June 21–July 9, 2021 | On-Campus Session: July 12–July 30, 2021

Boston Conservatory at Berklee Musical Theater Acting Intensive is designed for emerging theater artists, ages 15 to 25. Select to study in person, in an online setting, or participate in both sessions of the intensive.

Led by Broadway veteran Laura Marie Duncan, Musical Theater Acting Intensive is a rigorous program that delves deep into the complex art of character development, with intensive studies in acting, singing, and movement. 

Students will also explore classical and contemporary repertoire, with daily classes in subjects ranging from Shakespeare to clowning to pop and rock vocal techniques. Another key component of Musical Theater Acting Intensive is its focus on audition preparation. In each session, students will refine one to two audition pieces, so that they leave the program with the skills and confidence needed to nail their next audition.

Musical Theater Acting Intensive is modeled after Boston Conservatory’s top-ranking musical theater programs and gives students who are considering a degree in theater an opportunity to experience Boston Conservatory's signature training. The program is designed to complement the Conservatory’s related summer intensives—Musical Theater Dance Intensive, which develops strong theater dance technique, and Vocal/Choral Intensive, which is designed for serious singers interested in musical theater or classical music.
