The CTM Actors Academy’s purpose is to provide concentrated training in a small-group environment for exceptional young actors, over an extended period of time, developing essential performance skills, fostering talent, promoting professionalism, and building ensemble. We strive to provide the tools and training so Academy actors will become cast members who demonstrate talent, skills, and behavior exemplary of young professional actors in the audition, casting, rehearsal, and performance process.

The CTM Actors Academy is an extensive program for passionate, talented, and dedicated actors in grades 8-12. The program provides:

1) Professional actor/theater training in all disciplines (workshops, master classes, etc.)
2) Experience of attending live theater, reading plays, and becoming CTM ambassadors

How to Get Involved: An Actors Academy Informational Session is annually held May. Auditions are typically held in June or July. Information on registering for the Info Session and Auditions will be posted here closer to those dates.
