Conservatory Theatre Ensemble

or "CTE," is an award winning theatre education program that spans a four year sequence of training in all aspects of theatre. CTE is based on an "ensemble" approach that emphasizes the group working as a team: "many working as one." Our students learn that success is the result of effective collaboration. It is the combined work of actors, directors, designers, technicians, backstage crew, playwrights, guest artists and teachers, which make plays come alive onstage.
