NHSI Theatre Arts Institute students can choose between a focus of study in Acting or Design. All students will take a morning Acting/Voice/Movement class. In the afternoon, Acting students choose from a variety of electives, while Design students take stage management and design process classes. The 4-week program will be separated into two-week segments:
