Shenandoah Conservatory

Shenandoah Conservatory's rigorous theatre programs equip you for highly successful professional careers in the theatre business. Your talents are nurtured and challenged by our professional faculty and staff, whether your major is in performance or design and technical areas. Graduates from Shenandoah's theatre programs work on Broadway, in regional theatres, on national and international tours, on cruise ships, as well as in film, television and commercials.  At Shenandoah, we engage you from the first day you arrive on campus. A robust season of musicals, plays, and youth theatre productions on two stages keeps you active and involved and helps you hone your skills in a practical setting. Hands-on attention from faculty and a belief in cultivating the individual artist–as opposed to the "cookie cutter" approach–prepares you to compete in the industry with the confidence that comes with knowing how to market your unique "brand."  Shenandoah Conservatory, a school of Shenandoah University, is located in Winchester, VA, just 70 miles west of Washington, DC.   Established in 1875, Shenandoah University is a private, nationally-recognized University that blends professional experiences with liberal education, and is home to approximately 4,000 students across more than 200 areas of study in seven different schools.
