Actors gain practical tools that they can begin to apply to their varied projects. They meet for class daily, with the core classes being acting, voice, text, movement, script analysis and Soundpainting. Classes are taught by leading artists in their fields. The core curriculum is supplemented with workshops, master classes and discussions with artists in residence. Actors are cast in one of the two outdoor productions plus studio projects and workshops.
At the end of the program, actors are cast in new theatrical pieces, developed over the course of the summer by the directors and writers of the training company.
Directors meet in two sessions, each twice a week, with one session devoted to the reading and analysis of text, and one session devoted to the fundamentals of theatrical composition. Additional classes in acting, collaboration, movement, Soundpainting, and a roundtable discussion of the Powerhouse season support these sessions.
At the end of the program, directors and writers will collaborate to present a new theatrical piece, developed over the course of the summer, featuring actors from the training company.
Playwrights gain practical tools for generating work by writing and revising new short plays every week, both in and out of a rehearsal process. Additional classes in acting, collaboration, movement, Soundpainting, and a roundtable discussion of the Powerhouse season support these sessions.
