THEATER DEPARTMENT

Patel Conservatory Theater Department

The Patel Conservatory Theater department offers training in musical and non-musical theater through Patel Conservatory Theater (PCT) productions, performance classes and technical theater programs. Programming takes place during one of 2 sessions, school year (fall-spring), and summer.
 

PCT (Patel Conservatory Theater)

The Patel Conservatory Theater stages six professionally produced and student performed musicals annually. 3 school-year productions, and 3 summer productions cater to the learning needs of elementary, middle, and high school performers. Students experience the production process just as a professional would, by participating in auditions, call-backs and a rehearsal process which caters to the developing performer. Students perform in multiple performances of the prepared show, resulting in an ideal learning experience. Most productions include a post-mortem rehearsal for students to further self-assess their experience individually and as a group.


Classes

After-school courses are offered Monday-Friday and Saturdays. Our full slate of courses is available by visiting: All Theater Courses, and includes courses for age levels ranging from pre-school through adult and levels of experience from beginner to advanced.
Homeschool classes are offered during the day and are developed to meet the needs of homeschool students and their families.
