Gustavus/Guthrie Theater
Audition Boot Camp

July 6–12, 2014

The Gustavus/Guthrie Theater Camp will not be occuring the summer of 2015 and should hopefully return the summer of 2016

This Intensive audition workshop aims to bridge the gap between high school and college for students who are serious about pursuing a career in theater performance. The Audition Boot Camp participants will have the opportunity to work on audition techniques and monologues with master teachers and artists. This intensive weeklong training program takes advantage of its unique location in the Midwest, at the campus of Gustavus Adolphus College and our close proximity to one of the most thriving theater cities in the nation, Minneapolis, home to the world renowned Guthrie Theater.

Classes and individual coachings are led by artists and teachers from the Guthrie Theater and Gustavus’ Department of Theatre and Dance. All sessions are conducted in a variety of state-of-the-art facilities which include: a 280 seat trust stage, a black box, two dance studios, and several classrooms. Students will also have access to Gustavus’ Folke Bernadotte Library, and its extensive play collection, as well as computer labs throughout the campus.

The highlight of the program is our day at the Guthrie Theater in Minneapolis, where students will have the opportunity to work with various Guthrie artists, tour the facilities and learn about the workings of a major theater organization.


Tuition is $975. Students entering grades 9–12 in the fall of 2013 are eligible to attend.
