By Invitation Only

The Coterie's Master classes are by invitation-only. Students can be nominated to audition by their teachers from other Coterie Theatre School classes for either Acting Master or Comedy Master, or both. Once invited to be a Master Class member, students can continue to register until they graduate from high school, as long as they remain in good standing.

Master Class is a place for students to experience ongoing advanced theatre training. Students are surrounded by other young people and professionals who are passionate about theatre, and are excited about working together as an ensemble. Material for Master Class is more advanced and the content is more mature than what students might experience in their school theatre programs. Master Class members are often considered for Coterie mainstage productions and can be recommended to other professional theatres for casting opportunities.

Acting Master and Comedy Master are two separate programs with separate audition processes. The invitation a student receives is based on classes they have taken and skills they have demonstrated. If you are currently enrolled in one Master Class and are interested in pursuing both, talk to Amanda about what skills to work on and classes to take.

Master Class students possess a passion for the craft, self-discipline, talent, commitment, and a desire to work as an ensemble.

Unleash your child's future!
