PRE-PRO COMPANY | 8th-12th Grades

Pre-Professional Company (Pre-Pro) is ACT II and the Arkansas Repertory Theatre’s audition-only performance program featuring the top high school-age singers, dancers, and actors in the area. This small company of pre-professional performers will meet weekly for advanced training and rehearsals. Throughout the duration of the course, students will explore challenging musical theatre solo/ensemble repertoire, advanced scene work, the business of the industry, audition & college prep, TV/Film Acting, and host special masterclasses featuring guest artists from the entertainment industry.

Pre-Pro Company members will be cast in a summer mainstage production, specific show TBA. While encouraged, participation in the production is not required to participate in the course.
