Summer Academy Showcase

The Geva Theatre Center Conservatory Summer Academy is a four-week professional theatre training program for 30 selected young actors, ages 12-18, who wish to explore, define, and develop the actor in themselves. A process-centered program open to students of all levels of theatre experience, Summer Academy 2024 will provide quality training for the beginning actor, as well as advanced level study for the young actor with previous experience. Geva’s Summer Academy faculty is comprised of a diverse group of professional actors, educators, directors, choreographers, and more who are active in the industry at the collegiate level, regionally, on tours, Off-Broadway, and on Broadway. They are skilled in nurturing young actors with a curriculum designed to embrace, engage, explore, and empower in an artistically safe and strong environment. Class sizes are intentionally small to facilitate personal and individual focus, along with in-depth opportunities tailored to specific goals for each student. At Summer Academy, students invest in themselves and their craft. They discover the stories they need to tell and why they need to tell them. The focus of the program this year is Shakespeare and other heightened language texts. Students will graduate from Summer Academy with a strong foundational toolbox including headshot, resume, bio, a professional showcase (which is open to the public), and a ticket to each show in Geva’s 2024-2025 season.

How I Learned What I Learned


OCT 15 – DEC 01


From Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright August Wilson comes this autobiographical one-actor play chronicling Wilson’s life as a Black artist in the Hill District in Pittsburgh. Through stories about his first jobs, first loves, and experiences with racism, we go deep into the life of one of the most celebrated writers of the 20th century, from his roots to the completion of his history-making American Century Cycle, his ten-play series showcasing Black experience from across the twentieth century.

Nina Simone: Four Women


JAN 14 – FEB 09


September 16, 1963. When Nina Simone heard that four Black girls had been killed in the bombing of the 16th Avenue Church in Birmingham, Alabama, her first impulse was to try and build a zip gun; instead she channeled her rage into “Mississippi Goddamn,” the song that marked the emergence of Nina Simone, the Civil Rights activist. Infused with traditional hymns along with songs including “Four Women,” “I Loves You, Porgy,” and “Young, Gifted and Black,” Nina Simone: Four Women looks at an artist and the women around her as their journey leads them down a path of discovery and healing.

Little Women


FEB 25 – MAR 23


Louisa May Alcott’s classic novel comes to fresh life in this inventive, theatrical adaptation which follows as the March sisters – Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy – gather in the family attic. From making up fairy stories, writing for their pretend newspaper, and playing make believe, they graduate to scenes of love, loss, and – for Jo – artistic self-discovery, as they come of age against the backdrop of the American Civil War.


By Louisa May Alcott
Adapted by Heather Chrisler

After all, it’s been a bad year, and Brews believes partnering with his corporation on a new bottled water factory would be a great opportunity for the Rez to create its own industry and sustain itself.
