​The Acting Intensive is IRT’s highest level of training for young people who are passionate about the performing arts. Acting Intensive provides in-depth training from IRT actors and artists through a variety of specialized classes intended to enhance their acting skills to prepare for their next role. The curriculum will challenge and support each student, while giving them the space to explore within an ensemble. Skill-building classes include movement, improv, design, dance, Shakespeare, and musical theatre.

In addition to class work, students will collaborate to create and stage a final presentation created by the ensemble. This performance will take place on the OneAmerica Mainstage and is open to families and friends.

Because Acting Intensive provides an in-depth experience and requires a summer of collaborative work, we recommend this program for students who have previous theatre experience or have attended previous theatre classes or camps such as: IRT Summer Workshops, Summer Stock Stage, Asante Children’s Theatre Academy, Phoenix Theatre Youth Classes, Jr. Civic Classes, or Young Actors Theatre Classes.
