TheatreBridge serves as a connecting link between high school and college theatre and encourages a commitment to a life of creative engagement. The highly selective program provides promising young actors an opportunity to stretch their imaginations and skills and encourages students to achieve their highest potential.
What is TheatreBridge?
- An intensive 6-week residency on the Brown University campus.
- For promising high school actors desiring a full immersion in conservatory-style acting training.
- The program is designed to expand students’ physical and vocal capability in order to support an exploration of the acting techniques of Sanford Meisner, Ann Bogart, Uta Hagen, and Kristin Linklater, among others.
- We give our students the tools to create captivating performances and overcome any acting challenge, whether it’s with a classical text or no text at all.
The TheatreBridge Company, entering its 11th season in the summer of 2015, puts you in the center of a creative community that includes a world-class faculty devoted exclusively to TheatreBridge training and acclaimed for its expert mentorship and its capacity to treat every young artist as a unique and specific individual. You will be amazed at the growth in your creative powers as classes, workshops, rehearsals, and performances help you to dig into your deepest human resources. Expect to be engrossed and engaged as you work daily on your physical, vocal, and impulsive expressiveness, and as you work nightly to practice and rehearse scenes, and to devise theatrical projects.
The TheatreBridge Company follows the model of the most successful conservatory training programs available in America. Working with techniques pioneered by Sandy Meisner, Ann Bogart, Uta Hagen, and Kristin Linklater, among others, our training grounds your acting in the reality of doing, expressed through a responsive body and an empowered voice. It also stretches into many aspects of theatre practice, and, from year to year, we have included extended workshops in Shakespeare, clowning, stage combat, or contact improvisation.
All TheatreBridge students live together in a Brown residence hall and eat their meals in campus dining halls. Past Resident Assistants have been Brown University theatre concentrators, carefully selected and dedicated to helping you focus, strengthen, and release your creativity while exploring the reality of what life is like on a vibrant, thriving college campus.
