Burning Coal Theatre is heading in to 2021 with optimistic that they will be able to host two summer conservatories for young people.

In June 2021, Burning Coal Theatre hopes to be able to do a live summer conservatory for area middle school students from 6th through 8th grades. Cost of conservatory will be $295.

Each year, the conservatory spends two weeks working from 10am-3pm learning clowning, movement, voice production, theatre games and improvisation. At the end of the two-week period, they present a work that they have created themselves using those newly learned skills. All social distancing requirements will be strictly adhered to and a limited number of students will be accepted into the conservatory.
