No, sketch experience is not a requirement. However, you will be expected to participate in each class. Participants of all ability levels attend the workshop. If you are willing to learn and try new things, you will have a great time.
Each morning during the first week you will be in master classes and specialty workshops. The afternoons and evenings are for rehearsal time and activities. During the second week you will work primarily on the final show. There is little free time.
On Monday we hold placement auditions for the musical theater and sketch comedy tracks to determine your rehearsal and performance group. Everyone will be in the final show.
This is an individual decision. If you stay in campus housing, you will have a counselor (one counselor for every 10 to 15 participants). Counselors supervise activities and coordinate devotionals (scripture, song, and prayer) each evening. Commuters will also be assigned a counselor and are welcome to participate in all activities, including evening devotionals. Campus participants are not allowed to leave the residence halls after the nightly head count. Commuters must check out with their counselor and be picked up each evening by an adult after the rehearsals/activities.
Workshop participants eat in the Cannon Center cafeteria (The Commons). Those staying in campus housing are given a meal card good for all breakfasts, lunches, and dinners. Those who are commuting are given a meal card for lunches only. Commuters may buy other meals as desired on a day-to-day basis in the cafeteria. Breakfasts cost approximately $7.25 and dinners cost approximately $10.75 ($14.00 on Sunday). Partial meal cards are not available.
It covers double-occupancy accommodations in campus residence halls from Sunday evening through Friday morning (linen for bed and bath is provided). Meals are provided from Sunday dinner through Friday breakfast.

To request a specific roommate, you must provide a roommate’s name when registering. The roommate must also give us your name with his or her registration. If you register and choose a roommate but that person doesn’t register for housing by the time it is filled or doesn’t enroll, you will be paired up with another participant attending the program.
Bed and bath linens are provided. Bring extra towels, alarm clock, bar soap, shampoo, slippers, drinking cup, bathrobe, and personal items. Please be sure to read the prearrival information for a more detailed list.
