Designed for the working actor, the Evening Conservatory distills the physical, emotional, and analytical tools of acting into a concentrated three-semester program. Students will push beyond their creative comfort zones to take their talents to new heights.

COVID-19 Update:

Our Evening Conservatory will be offered as a hybrid learning format this fall, including a combination of remote and in-person experiences strictly adhering to city and state-mandated guidelines, and based on individual students’ comforts and abilities. We’ll meet you where you’re at come September, no questions asked! Know that as we muscle through our new reality, your safety remains our top priority.

For any questions or concerns, don’t hesitate to reach out to us at admissions@atlantictheater.org.

The second semester solidifies the students’ understanding of script analysis and encourages integration of emerging skills. Students perform an exploration of a structured improvisation that they write, research and perform.

The Summer Semester

The last semester challenges students to apply their training under the pressures of performance. Work includes advanced scene study, an ensemble performance project and preparation for the business.
