Providing a platform for the creative leaders of American theatre TODAY! 




Have you ever wanted to learn how theatre can create change?

At A.L.T. we believe in diversity of thought and giving voice to the voiceless around the country.


That is why A.L.T. offers this unparalleled experience for ONLY 16 high school and four college students.


This is not your regular high school summer theatre program offering acting classes at a theatre camp. This is a one-of-a-kind opportunity that brings accepted students in contact with our professional teaching artist, producing artistic director, and an ensemble of peers for a summer of creativity, fun, and learning from #YourNationalTheatre!

Born out of our original Junior Board program Students Create Change (SC2) is an eight-week program in which students join together to create a NEW world premiere productionIn the community, SC2 leads the way for discussion on social change, and members gain valuable experience in collaborative creation. This summer intensive will prepare students to be leaders as directors, collaborative creative artists, coaches, prospective theatre professionals, and members of society.  


Who should apply? Students interested in working hard to use art as a tool to spark social change and discussion on civic issues are strongly encouraged to apply. This may be a technology guru, stage manager, director, actor, designer, dramaturge, prospective teacher, or someone else!

In 2021, SC2 will commence June 2 and end Aug. 1, with applications DUE May 21, 2021. For further details and to apply, CLICK HERE!
