Theatre Arts Daily Schedule

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 Stage Management/Design-Tech students take stage management and design process classes.

Please take some time to review the daily schedule and time commitment that the Institute requires. The program is a Theatre Intensive, and the schedule does not allow for many outside activities. Be thoughtful in considering your interest in the rigorous schedule of the program.
