The year-long conservatory consists of 3 sessions (Fall 2023, Winter 2024, Spring 2024) with classes for different age groups running Mondays through Thursdays. Each session culminates in a final on-stage presentation for friends and family. Every class is structured as an Acting Class where students learn the fundamentals of auditioning, studying, and performing. Guest Artists also come in to teach more specific subject matter such as audition techniques, movement, and stage combat. Students in the conservatory are welcome to audition for the Fall and Spring mainstage youth productions. Additional workshops are added throughout the year and conservatory students are invited to attend at no additional costs.

Youth Conservatory Classes are available to students aged 10-18* years.

"What the theater has done for him is tremendous. He truly is not the same child. He has self-confidence, his sense of humor is shining through, his entire personality completely came out. Our son is not all the same guy. He just started middle school and walked in there not afraid. I know this is because of the conservatory. I love both of you for this, more than words could ever say."
~ Hilary M. (Parent of Laguna Playhouse Conservatory Student)
