We are looking for students who are committed to contributing to the world in which they live and developing their artistic and intellectual abilities. The study of theatre is a life-long activity and requires the student to develop multiple skills across many disciplines. In addition to rigorous training in acting, movement and speech, students study theatre history, dramatic literature, playwriting and directing. We place emphasis on individual growth, discovery of personal strengths, critical thinking, process oriented work and the ensemble approach to making theatre.

Our program is demanding and requires a high level of commitment from our students.  In addition to opportunities to perform onstage at Ellington our students have extensive opportunities to work with professional artists and theatre companies from around the country and the world.
