The Academy Festival is a weekend of performances from CharacterWorks' Academy classes. In these audition-only, year-long classes, students gain experience and training through a focused curriculum. Each summer, students have a chance to apply online and gain acceptance before regular fall class registration opens in July. The Academy classes are excited to showcase their work!
