In the theatre conservatory, students are able to explore the art of dramatic and musical theatre. With musicals being one of the only “American Made” art forms, students are taught the history as well as the art form. Using both dialog and music for expression, musical theater helps students become more confident onstage. Dramatic theatre incorporates contemporary with historical works. Students explore different types of dramatic theatre and work into scriptwriting.

The Audition/Assessment form for each conservatory is the map of the curriculum for the different levels of class offered at Encore. There are two columns in each level marked (M) Mastery and (NM) Not-Mastery. The student must achieve a mastery in every single technical skill in that column. Any skill not at the Mastery level will keep the student from moving to the next level.
