Conservatories & Ensembles
As students mature and gain greater facility in their craft, Imagination Stage takes them from technique to production. Conservatories offer advanced training for upper middle and high school students that culminates in a final production. Ensembles provide high-quality performance opportunities in our Reeve or Lerner theatre spaces.
