Summer 2021:

Curtain Up

SSTI's advance preparations for 2020 did not go to waste. We planned for on-site testing, plastic shields, removal of touch points, and safely 'bubbling' our students. These plans will carry over into 2021, combined with vaccination standards when they become clear. We will only present programming that is safe and responsible.

“It’s so important for kids to have a place like this to go to when they’re figuring out who they are as artists. It’s an amazing privilege to be here. And that production: one of the best high school shows I've ever seen!”
Corey Cott

"SSTI is a game changer. My daughter has shown so much growth each year due to the level of training she has received. The master-class faculty are the best of the best, and my daughter is truly prepared for her auditions."

This specialized program pairs a limited number of technical theatre students with our extraordinary master instructors to create a summer tech theatre experience like none other.


Beyond daily classroom work, SSTI Tech students are designing, constructing, and building a professional show. They're trained in the art of documenting one's work and how to present their craft, abilities, and skills in a college or professional interview. SSTI Tech students annually stand high above the competition for the top collegiate programs. 


This is THE opportunity and home for that special student who wants to live and thrive in the world of backstage theatre.

Fueling Passions,​ Igniting Careers

"Attending SSTI Tech set me up to thrive in college. Now, as a working professional, I'm stunned by the many similarities of daily life at SSTI to that of a professional summer stock company. I will always be grateful for SSTI."

"The relationship between the students and staff is so strong and supportive. I know that every morning when I walk in the door my day is going to be filled with positivity and support. Gratitude really is the attitude at SSTI."
-Shea Grande, SSTI '18, '19

"SSTI saved my life. I learned more about myself as an actor and human being in that magical month than I have in the past four years"

This two week intensive is filled to the brim with musical theatre coaching and performance technique. Our incredible staff, pulled from the nation's top musical theatre college programs, pack this intensive with performance-based instruction designed to make you stronger and more versatile. 'Acting the Song', musical theatre dance and vocal coaching, and preparation for college auditions are our primary focuses for you and a limited group of peers at SSTI Essentials. Limited space available for this popular program.

This program, for aspiring performers not yet old enough for our high school intensive, is always a quick sell-out. During this five day session, SSTI Junior Cast Members will be challenged and stretched by the dedicated staff of SSTI. They’ll be pushed, just like the high schoolers, to become not only triple threat performers on-stage, but mature, responsible professionals off-stage. Daily curriculum will be varied and include individualized instruction and group instruction. The session will wrap up with an exciting showcase performance!
