Advanced Acting Learning Lab

Theatre Three in partnership with Booker T. Washington High School for The Performing and Visual Arts is proud to launch the third year of The Norma Young Advanced Acting Lab, a college level class for seniors who have shown proficiency & dedication to the craft of acting throughout their high school training/career and intend to make acting the focus of study at University. Not only do participants receive training at the highest level from professionals in the field, they are also granted complete and up close access to the professional theatre-making process from first day of rehearsal to opening night to closing night and beyond. Theatre Three provides free admission to students throughout the season and Master Classes throughout the school year.  

Theatre Three has a long history of providing opportunities for young professionals to hone their craft and make important mentoring relationships that have allowed so many of our T3 Alum become sought out professionals around the world.
