NEPTUNE PREP

 

Neptune Prep is an advanced training program for youth ages 16 and over who wish to pursue a post-secondary theatre education. This unique curriculum, which is currently unavailable anywhere else in Nova Scotia, trains students as pre-professional artists and prepares them to audition for college and university programs in the performing arts.

After the inaugural two years of this program, our Prep students found much success receiving multiple acceptances to colleges, universities, and theatre schools across the country.

This specialized program includes over 144 hours of training with leading professional artists as well as tickets to some Neptune Shows and Masterclasses. There are two streams to the program – one that focuses on acting, and another that explores the area of musical theatre. Students from both streams also come together for training in stage combat, clown, physical theatre, voice and acting.

Enrollment is kept small to focus on the individual student and their development as an artist.

Neptune Prep runs for 24 weeks, with one 6 hour class each week on Saturdays from September 2018 - March 2019. Auditions for Prep 2018-2019 have closed. To book an audition for Prep 2019-2020, contact Laura Caswell by email at lcaswell@neptunetheatre.com.

 


 

Congratulations to Graduates of the Neptune Prep Program!

After the very first year of the Neptune Theatre School's Prep Program in 2016-17, we are happy to report the great success of its graduates.

Our students, who come from all over Nova Scotia, studied intensively for six months with our professional panel of instructors in acting and musical theatre.

Many of them auditioned and were accepted into post-secondary institutions including Dalhousie University, Sheridan College, CCPA, Randolph Academy, St. Clair College, and the National Theatre School. Two of our students also auditioned and received roles in professional theatre jobs in the summer of 2017: Ria Kapur at the Charlottetown Festival Young Company, and Riel Reddick-Stevens at Two Planks and a Passion.

 


 

Here's what Neptune Prep students had to say about this unique opportunity:

 

"Neptune Prep allowed me to grow as a performer, gaining confidence in myself and insight into the professional theatre world from fantastic instructors with first-hand experience in the field."
       - Abigail Sinclair

 

"I had an amazing time! I was challenged and pushed to put myself out there, which vastly improved my confidence as a young actor preparing to audition for many schools and shows. I felt confident knowing that I had the material and experience to go into my auditions fully prepared."
       - Rebecca Temple

 

"Neptune Prep was a wonderful experience. I was completely prepared for all of my post-secondary auditions. Thanks to Prep, I had proper audition etiquette, appropriate material and just overall confidence! I learned how to communicate more with other people and how to listen to my scene partner and just other people in general. Everyone was very supportive and having a wonderful time!"
       - Riel Reddick-Stevens

 

"Neptune Prep Program definitely helped my feel confident in the audition room and provided me with a set of skills that enhanced my performance as a triple threat."
       - Ria Kapur

 

"Coming in to Prep, I didn't know much about auditions. I auditioned for one university, didn't get in, and had a year to spare. In Prep, I learned all the stuff I didn't even know I needed to know about universities, auditions, jobs and the industry, and the skills I'll need to have to succeed in theatre."
       - Alison Dickson
