Summer Seminar students


OSF Summer Seminar for High School Juniors

Every year, a select group of students just completing their junior year in high school come to Ashland to spend two intensive weeks participating in a wide range of activities designed to introduce them to the many aspects of professional theatre.

Students who attend the Summer Seminar learn about all aspects of the theatre with classes and workshops led by OSF's company of theatre professionals in such areas as theatre administration, fund raising, stage management, technical theatre, Renaissance dance, Shakespearean scansion, audition skills, stage combat, text analysis, movement and voice for the stage.

Students will also see ten plays in the Festival's repertory, work on projects with other students addressing the challenges facing school drama programs and the arts on a national level and become friends with others who care deeply about theatre.

The application process for the 2014 Summer Seminar is now closed.
Please check back in January, 2015 for details about applying for the 2015 Summer Seminar.
