About the Summer Young Actors Academy
Training young actors for the stage and theatre through an academic and conservatory approach.         

"It was evident that the staff at Spotlighters Young Actors Academy worked diligently in making Spotlighters Young Actors Academy the place where young actors will receive the acting skills and techniques needed to be successful."

What we are: A summer theatre intensive that offers theatre education and training to youth in the Baltimore metro area. The program was designed by local theatre professionals with input from local college and university theatre educators. Our three-to-five week camp is for the serious young actor, who wants to have fun!! 

"I worked with dedicated professionals, students from different backgrounds and learned so much in so many ways."

Who we are: Educational and theatrical professionals dedicated to providing a concentrated curriculum in the knowledge, skills, and practices for powerful theatre. Our staff is comprised of teaching artists and master class instructors that work in K-12 schools, colleges, and universities, as well as at local, regional, and LORT Theatres. Their wealth of experience in the classroom and the theatre give our young actors extraordinary opportunities to gain new insight into plays and character development, while polishing their fundamental talents.

"Throughout the five week program, Lashay has learned and accomplished many techniques that have redefined her theatre acting and stage skills."

The Upper School Young Actors Academy provides an age-appropriate conservatory model, giving students an intellectual as well as practical approach to the craft of acting. Young Actors spend over 130 hours in both the classroom and in scene study to understand the methods of acting, the historical context of theatre from a global perspective, and a vast array of workshops.

"The Young Actors Academy is a great way to learn how to be an actor and how to improve your skills as an actor."
