Shadowbox Live Summer Bootcamp


“I’ve learned more in these two weeks than I did in my 5 years of education. I’ve experienced an incredible transformation in myself as a performer and my intensity and passion for what I want to do. It has been a huge revelation.”

Wanting to explore the arts as a career choice? Not sure what additional training you need to be competitive? There’s no doubt that the industry has evolved to a more modern aesthetic. Long gone are the days of “Oklahoma” and “Bye Bye Birdie”. The biggest thing on Broadway is the Hip-Hop show “Hamilton”. The Rock Arts are at an all time high and it doesn’t look like it’s going to slow down anytime soon. So what can you do to better prepare yourself for today’s growing industry? Attend the Shadowbox Live Summer Bootcamp and get intense instruction in all four of the Rock Arts disciplines!

In today’s market, it is imperative that artists master/explore more than one artistic discipline. The idea of a “triple threat” is no longer an exception. It’s a standard. Shadowbox Live, the Largest Resident Theatre Company in America, presents over 500 performances of 19 different productions per year all of which center around the Rock Arts. The 45 full-time artists are known as ‘meta-performers’ because of their artistic versatility. At Shadowbox Live we do it all! And so can YOU!
