Conservatory - Fall 2017

Conservatory is a progressive program of study for students who are interested in developing more advanced acting skills.


There are two ways to be eligible for participation in Conservatory.

  1. Recommendation from a Childsplay teaching artist based on positive attitude and theatrical aptitude demonstrated in an academy class. Nominated students are informed by letter and no audition is necessary.
  2. Students may also audition to be a part of Conservatory. Auditions for Fall 2017 Conservatory will be held on Saturday, August 19th. Please contact Kathryn Brantley at to schedule an audition time.


There are five levels of Conservatory. Each level is made up of two semesters of study in the Fall and Spring which may be taken in any order.


All Conservatory students participate in an evening Showcase at the end of each semester.


Fall Conservatory begins Saturday September 9th and continues through December 9th, 2017 (No class on October 7th and November 25th). 


Conservatory Showcase will be Wednesday, December 13th at 7pm on the Tempe Center for the Arts. Students need to be available from 4-9pm on that day.
