The Spring Cycle includes a performance workshop and development of a reel to prepare students for casting opportunities. In the performance workshop students are cast in a full length play, follow a rehearsal process, and present the work for an invited audience. The focus is to apply the training of the two prior semesters to the demands of bringing the work to performance and incorporating audience energy. During this time students will also work with TS faculty and one of the industry’s leading demo reel production companies to create, develop, and shoot original material specifically for each actor. Graduates will have fully edited professional footage for their casting reel.


How is a conservatory different from getting a theatre degree in acting?

“Out of this conservatory, I got to work with a manager who now I am signed with. And I’ve also booked some T.V. work. I wouldn’t have achieved any of this without the Studio.”
— Raul M.
“Most importantly, being able to go into a professional audition and know what I’m doing. And feel confident and comfortable. And just kill it.”
— Kelly Marie K.
“This Studio was one of the best experiences in my life and I loved getting to be a part of it.”
— John M.
