    The Boston University Summer Theatre Institute 2022 is a five-week pre-conservatory experience for highly motivated high school theatre artists. Designed to mirror the first year BFA experience within the College of Fine Arts School of Theatre at Boston University. Find out more!

    Designed to mirror the freshman BFA experience within the School of Theatre at Boston University, the Institute allows all participants the opportunity to test their interests and abilities in a professional training environment. Students earn 4.0 college credits for their coursework in acting, design, voice, singing, and movement, as well as master classes, experimental theatre laboratories, and the creation of an original piece of theatre with members of an ensemble. Throughout the 5-week program, students engage with Boston University, the professional artistic community in Boston, and the citys historic and cultural offerings. Students graduate from BUSTI having honed their technique, depth of intellectual and artistic questioning, playfulness in collaboration, and ability to tell a dynamic story through the theatrical medium.
