Theatre Academy logo

The Theatre In the Park is the largest outdoor community theatre in the country.  The Academy is a new branch of educational theatre presented the TTIP.  During the summer, the Academy is a daytime program for your child to continue theatrical education in a hands-on way.  During the winter break, the Academy is a long day rehearsal style full musical, focused on the refinement of skills for older performers.

The Theatre In The Park Summer Academy hires Teaching Artists from around the nation to bring new and exciting ways of learning to the area.  Directors, Choreographers, and Music Directors apply from all over the country and the best of the best are chosen to teach, create, and instruct.  The Winter Academy is created by local Teaching Artists to continue the tradition of great local theatre by local artists.

Summer Academy Logo
TTIP Summer Academy is a summer long program including two KIDS style shows, and one JUNIOR style show.  The Summer Academy is split into three June and July sessions.

TTIP Summer Academy in June is a four week program with two shows happening in rep.  This means you can spend two weeks on one show, and then after you perform it, can begin the following Monday on another show!  The June session is for performers from grades 3 to 8.

In July, the Summer Academy moves to one singular show.  This longer rehearsal process allows for bigger dance numbers, bigger scenic elements, and an overall bigger production.  The July session is for performers from grades 5 to 12.

TTIP Summer Academy registration information coming soon!

Winter Academy Logo
TTIP Winter Academy is a program during school's Winter Break.  This is a full production that focuses on the refinement of skills already developed within performers.  The Winter Academy is designed to focus on individual performance aspects, and because of that we only select a maximum of 30 people to be in the program.  This program is audition based and auditions take place early fall.

TTIP Winter Academy treats itself like any TTIP Mainstage production.  Auditions, callbacks, casting and intensive rehearsals all create an environment of learning and excitement, which culminate in a fully realized Broadway style musical.  The Winter Academy is for performers in grades 6th through 12th.

TTIP Winter Academy is designed to take performer's skills and refine, improve, and showcase them. We strive for growth, quality, fun and memories for all of our performers and participants.
