Are you a writer, designer, or performer looking to amplify your career and join a comprehensive, advanced program? Apply to EnActe Conservatory and join a talented team of hardworking students to bring a production to life!

In EnActe’s 2020-2021 year long Conservatory we will read and adapt The Jungle Book in the context of its origins, strip it of its colonial overtones and bring it back in all its raw essence – to the jungle where it was born!

Story, music, movement, choreography, masks, costumes and sounds of the jungle – our advanced theatre group will create all this with Master trainers!

September 15th – October 22nd

In this intensive program, taught by Artistic Director Vinita Sud Belani, students will adapt and develop Rudyard Kipling’s “The Jungle Book” into a dance and music laden theatrical production. Students will learn and apply the invaluable skills of story and character development and lyric-writing.
Use your creativity and personal worldview to adapt the story for a contemporary audience!

October 27th – December 17th

In this exceptional creative process, taught by a variety of professionals in their field, students will learn and apply all the design components of executing this theatrical piece –  lyric composition, sets, projection design, set design, choreography, costumes, music, movement and sound! Subject experts will conduct several Masterclasses.
Ultimately, students are crafting the design for our brand-new play!

February 28th – April 29th

It’s showtime!
Under the guidance of an experienced theatre director cast and crew members will rehearse, incorporate design elements, and put together the entire show!
After a thorough rehearsal period, you will premiere your hard work on opening night, May 7th, 2021, at Cubberley Theatre in Palo Alto. Don’t miss this exciting and hands-on opportunity!
