This program is designed to equip performers with a professional acting experience.  Encore+ is an audition based program that allows students to work with actors of all ages and seasoned directors.  Encore auditions occur early in the season to allow for actors who do not get cast the ability to participate in another program.  This year, our Encore+ program is part of our Mainstage season.  Standard Cost for this program is $150, financial assistance is available.  To apply for financial assistance click the appropriate box within the registration form and you will be sent more information.
