Teen Theater Intensive

Walnut Hill and The Center for Arts in Natick (TCAN) are pleased to offer a six-week theater intensive workshop series for teens.

Join Walnut Hill faculty for a six-week, “master class-style” workshop that builds both on-stage and auditioning skills through intensive classes in movement, acting, and musical theater.

The program is held on Walnut Hill’s campus and is taught by expert faculty and led by Walnut Hill theater faculty member Kirsten McKinney, an award-winning choreographer who has worked on over 200 shows, and has over 20 years teaching experience in the area’s most prestigious high schools and colleges.

The Spring 2016 program dates are Saturday mornings from 10:00am-2:00pm, March 26 through April 30. No auditions are required and the $495 tuition fee includes daily lunch during the six-week program. Parents are invited to the last class and a celebratory post-class reception.


Students can opt to receive supplemental private vocal instruction that will include technical exercises, musical theater repertoire, and audition preparation. All lessons are scheduled outside of the typical program hours in conjunction with the instructor Gina M. Fiore, who teaches at both Walnut Hill and The Boston Conservatory. It is possible to sign up for a single supplemental lesson or for multiple lessons, depending on the student's preference.

Beginners (30 minutes): $55 per session
Intermediate/Advanced (60 minutes): $90 per session
