COVID-19 Vaccination and Policies

Before applying to the program and paying any fees or deposits, please review our COVID-19 policy carefully.

Participants must provide proof of full COVID-19 vaccination, including a booster dose as defined by the CDC, and may not participate unless fully immunized and boosted (2 weeks after receiving a booster dose). Participants will be required to present proof of vaccination. Again, please note that you must be fully immunized by the time you arrive. Refunds are not provided to individuals who fail to provide proof of vaccination.

Participants must abide by all campus COVID-19 health and safety protocols in effect at the time of the summer intensive. Please note that these may change over time as we adjust to continue to respond to the pandemic. Failure to abide by health and safety protocols will result in removal from the program, and refunds are not provided to individuals who fail to comply with health and safety protocols.

In addition, depending upon the level of community transmission, it is possible that participants will be required to test, at their own cost, prior to traveling to Ithaca.

Age Eligibility

If you will be between 15 years and 18 years of age at the time of the Summer Theatre Intensive (typically in your first, sophomore, or junior years of high school), you are welcome to apply. 

"The Summer Theatre Intensive gave me a safe space to perform authentically while receiving candid feedback that helped me develop my pieces and feel confident presenting them. I learned how to take risks, trust myself and develop my process. The Intensive gave me a priceless educational experience and tight-knit community that opened my eyes to the intricacies of musical theater performance."
