Artists of all ages are inspired and motivated by the immediacy and power of communicating with a live audience. At SSPA, every student will enjoy a culminating live performance project regardless of the number of weeks enrolled.



Students will be cast in one of three areas of concentration: Musical Theater, Dramatic Acting or Technical Theater. Each day students meet in a performance workshop which serves as a rehearsal for their current production. In addition to these concentrated areas of study, students will select one recreation and two elective workshops to participate in. These workshops will meet for 45 minutes every day. Most workshops are designed to run for one week so students have the opportunity to experience a variety of activities.



Daily hours at SSPA are 8:30 a.m. to 4:15 p.m. each day.


In addition to workshop hours focused on production, students will register weekly for one recreation workshop and two arts workshop courses which meet for 45 minutes each day. 

Elective options include:





Audio & Light Design

Ballet, Hip-Hop, and Jazz
