BAMtheatre’s innovative Conservatory Ensemble programs are designed for the actor who wishes to study acting and musical theatre in an advanced setting. Over the course of an academic year, an ensemble of actors will work together to study, create, and perform. Bridging the gap between education and performance, each program will incorporate a rigorous curriculum of classes and workshops, as well as an exclusive Conservatory Ensemble production. 


The focus of the Conservatory Ensemble programs is on the training and development of the next generation of professional actors. Students will be challenged in a welcoming, educational, and collaborative community led by a team of passionate industry professionals. Our goal is to transform each student’s performance potential into true artistry. By offering individualized student instruction and one of a kind performance opportunities, every member of the Conservatory Ensemble will be given the opportunity to grow as artists. Students must successfully audition or be invited to participate in these competitive programs.
