The incredible team of PGT Teaching Artists has adapted the Teen Conservatory for virtual learning, allowing our students to create a performance space out of their living room, and make a costume collection from their own wardrobe. And you never know when a visiting Guest Artist will zoom bomb a class - so be ready for anything! Our PGquaranTine season promises to be filled with creative challenges, fun surprises, and new discoveries!
Teen Conservatory provides a challenging, artistically demanding program within the nurturing, supportive environment that defines every PGT experience. Together with their peers, and guided by their director, the Teens will write their own original ensemble virtual theatre piece. Students in this program contribute to the concept, plot development, script, music and lyrics of their own show.
If you love the small cast MainStage experience at PGT, this program is for you. If you are ready for a great theatre adventure - one that isn’t safe, but is filled with the energy of creative risk taking - then this program is for you! At PGT, we always embrace the power of experimentation and discovery. That power is magnified a million times when we are creating new work together.
Members of The Teen Co will be cast into small companies that will create original plays for the virtual space. With a focus on the collaborative process, each cast will move through the devising, writing, and rehearsal process, ultimately performing their original work - live or recorded, TBD by the members of the company themselves!
Based on the success of our Summer 2020 Teen Co program, we are thrilled to provide our older students with this opportunity to work together, shaping their own ideas into a finished script and performance, and thinking about the purpose of theatre during this unique and difficult time. And we are eager for our audiences to hear their voices!
Each cast will split their time between online rehearsals, and in-person at PGT: one rehearsal each week at PGT, and one rehearsal each week online. Performances will be virtual.
