Unfortunately, due to low enrollment we are cancelling our 2021 Virtual Theater Intensive. We are planning a bigger and better in person program for the summer of 2022 as we continue to move away from the challenges of COVID. Please continue to check our site for information on the summer of 2022.
Given the current Federal, State and Local social distancing restrictions on in person singing, acting and performances, the Walnut Hill Summer Theater Intensive will once again be delivered online this summer.
Walnut Hill's Summer Virtual Theater Intensive program is a unique combination of virtual studio classes that allow students to develop their craft as a young actor. During the two-week online program, each student takes three daily classes in acting, movement, and acting the song, all taught by Walnut Hill faculty. Class sizes are intentionally small, affording students individualized attention and a supportive environment in which to develop and strengthen their work.
