Immersion Program:

Our Immersion program builds confidence and self-esteem for area students through exploration of the dramatic arts. It helps young people to find their voice and to experience working collaboratively with students of different ages and backgrounds. We teach structure and discipline to students at a young age, and instill respect and responsibility for all people on a diverse team.

Preparing our future: In 10 years, our training has led area students to perform in Chicago, South Bend, and NYC, and has helped students succeed in being admitted to college arts and academic programs. Research shows that young people who participate in the arts are 4x more likely to be recognized for academic achievement.
Sessions: Sessions are held in the morning and afternoon. Evening work include memorizing lines, outside performances, social activities, working on presentation of the piece and interacting with cast members. Creative thought is fostered through dedicated journaling time and shared experiences at meals. Preparation outside of the sessions is essential.
