CULTIVATING THE NEXT GENERATION OF THEATRE ARTISTS AND ENTHUSIASTS
Holmdel Theatre Company, in association with Pivot Theatre Company, has a mission to bring students together with professional actors, set designers and directors. Our goal is to create an innovative environment that allows for hands-on education and mentoring.
Whether on the stage or behind the scenes, we are committed to nurturing the next generation of actors, directors, designers and stage crew.
PLAYFUL PERFORMANCES IN A PROFESSIONAL SETTING
Our program is for novice to pre-professionals ages 8-21. Our aim is to create an enriching, professional, inclusive and FUN environment for young performers to develop their craft.
We focus on teaching the fundamentals of musical theatre, including vocals, musical theatre dance, and acting, all led by our professional staff.
Passion, diligence, and a sense of community are at our core, and we intend for our artists to gain the tools to support and develop their talents in our performances and beyond.
HTC typically casts roles for main stage productions using students at the middle and high school level. This is a rare and amazing opportunity for students to work alongside professional adult actors and directors. When new emerging talent rubs elbows with our established members and our highly accomplished equity guest performers, a special electricity is generated that is uniquely ours.

We offer internships to high school and college students in both production and administration. Interns work side-by-side with industry professionals to receive practical training in technical theatre or administrative management. We ask for nothing more than a willingness to work hard and high standards of performance. In return, interns are treated as members of our professional staff and receive intensive hands-on experience. Please contact us for more information.
Workshops provide a voice to each student, and tools they can take with them and use all their life. Familiarity with these tools is necessary for a successful performer, but the skills learned in the acting component also translate directly into the workplace and everyday life. Students not only build a solid foundation in the arts, but they also build self-confidence, self-esteem, communication skills, and have fun discovering and exploring their talents!
HTC offers MasterClasses where students work directly with Broadway stars and industry leaders. Students gain invaluable insight and experience while working on skills such as audition cuts that will help them succeed in their pursuit of their theatre dreams. Recent classes included Tony nominee Jennifer Damiano and Drama Desk nominee Amy Spanger.
