Our Alumni Committee

The professional training, opportunities and networking students receive at the Conservatory don’t end when they graduate. The Conservatory has an active Alumni Committee that meets regularly to arrange ongoing educational and networking opportunities for graduates, and even develop theatrical productions that provide graduates with real-world acting experience.

The post-graduate services the committee and individual graduates can take advantage of include:

  • Peer Mentoring and Networking - Graduates meet monthly at the Conservatory to share information on local film and theater opportunities, and practice monologues and cold readings. Faculty members with specific expertise are often invited to lecture or teach at these meetings (free of charge).

  • Continued Education - Graduates would like a refresher course are allowed to retake any class in the Conservatory’s intensive, two-year, actor-training program (providing space is available) free of charge. Graduates may also be invited back by faculty members to participate as a “guest artist” with current students in a play or film being produced as part of our training curriculum. The Alumni Committee will also sometimes arrange for an instructor to teach graduates a Master Class in a particular acting technique.

  • Theatrical Productions - Through a Conservatory
    alumni program called the Artist’s Project,
    graduates can apply to produce a play in the
    school’s black-box theater – with free box office,
    production and marketing support from the
    Conservatory.  Any graduates interested in
    self-producing their own work in a local theater,
    theater festival or film festival, find a willing
    network of volunteer supporters among the
    ​school’s staff and faculty.

  • One-on-One Professional Consultations - Graduates can arrange, free of charge, to consult one-on-one with staff or faculty members for assistance with specific challenges they are encountering in the working world – resumes, headshots, audition preparation, contracts, voice work, bodywork, dialects and many other issues.

More than 90%* of the Conservatory’s graduates find work as actors within six months after graduation.
