The Theater Department at Walnut Hill offers a comprehensive program designed to engage passionate, dedicated, and curious young artists. Our approach is Stanislavsky-based and actor-centric. This intensive training of the mind, body, and voice develops an actor who communicates an honest, compelling story through the use of text, movement, and song. In addition to offering unparalleled actor training, the program fosters an appreciation of design and production through coursework and practical application. Faculty members cultivate a supportive culture and inspire students to engage in their craft with a seriousness of purpose. Through studio work, performance opportunities, and one-on-one coaching, student artists develop the professional skills and attitudes needed to excel in college or university conservatory training.

Many of our graduates have gone on to act, direct, sing, write and more onstage and on film and television. Others have taken their creativity and applied it in non-arts fields and also found much success. Here is a sampling of some of the exciting things our alumni have gone on to do, and view this year's matriculation list.
