FUSION Teen Accelerator

Fill This Summer with Imagination and Creativity
Join FUSION for a fun-filled, enriching, affordable theatre experience for high school students (entering 9th – 12th grades). FUSION Teen Accelerator is an opportunity to become fully immersed in a week-long intensive theatre lab. The only requirement is an active mind open to imagination, collaboration, hard work, and, of course, lots of fun.

Create Your Own Play
Experience the thrill of creating and performing in a devised (original) play! You will build a unique theatrical piece exploring exoplanets and dark matter through the work of Kepler mission astrophysicist Natalie Batalha. “No longer observers of the void, we are pilgrims of the Milky Way,” explains Dr. Batalha. Through the creative process, you find your own voice and vision while experiencing the art of collaboration as an ensemble. You are challenged to take imaginative risks as they apply and showcase the skills you’ve learned during the week’s intensive training.

Study with Master Teaching Artists
Learn from FUSION’s professionally trained teaching faculty. These theatre professionals and teaching artists are committed to training the next generation of theatre artists through their respective areas of expertise. Faculty credits include works at FUSION, Arena Stage, Seattle’s Empty Space Theatre, A.C.T., California Shakespeare Theatre, Northwest Asian American Theatre, Southwest Repertory Theatre, Book-it-Repertory Theatre—just to name a few.

Delve into Performance
Explore all elements of theatre-making. You will dive into developing original material while taking daily core (skill-based) classes including acting, design, stage combat, voice, and movement. In the afternoons, you shift into rehearsal mode working with a professional director, while focusing on staging and character development.

Perform Onstage At the Cell Theatre
At the end of the intensive week, students have the opportunity to perform their original work at The Cell Theatre to an invited audience of family and friends.
