PCPA, Pacific Conservatory Theatre

The Costume Survey

Description provided by the program

All areas are open to students at the internship level, where the work/training is most intensive. PCPA offers year-round internships in a professional regional theater setting. PCPA offers 4 internships September to May and up to 25 internships June to September/October with interns working in a specific area of interest while making West Coast contacts. PCPA's two-year conservatory program is designed to introduce students to theater at a generalist level; each student works in all areas of either technical production or in acting. As a conservatory, PCPA can help prepare students to enter formal study at a University or for entry level positions in professional theaters.
