An Educational Program with Professional Expectations

The Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival Conservatory Company is a performance-based program for committed, early career actors considering joining Actors Equity Association, who have a passion for Shakespeare, and want to develop the skills necessary to create innovative, collaborative theater in extraordinary spaces. It’s an artistic home to grow and take risks. Our specialty is practical experience that provides our alumnae with a competitive edge.

This immersive program begins in April 2023 in Garrison, NY where Conservatory Company members will understudy and perform roles on HVSF’s main stage under the theater tent. Professional mentorship will be combined with supporting workshops in physical, vocal and imaginative exploration of Shakespeare’s text.

The HVSF Conservatory Company is an educational program with professional expectations. It requires artists who are eager to grow, motivated to work, and dedicated fully to the art.
