Overview

Key Features

A carefully planned progression of acting, voice and speech, and movement classes stimulates your talent and builds the capacity to be bold and innovative. Fourth-year actor training students audition for roles in the Hartford Stage Company’s season, including its annual production of A Christmas Carol.

Performance opportunities at Hartt are extensive and designed to expose students to plays from across the theatrical repertoire. Starting with second year projects and culminating with full-scale, professionally designed productions, the plays are chosen to provide each class with challenging onstage experiences. 

In the spring semester of the third year, Actor Training students at University of Hartford receive approximately ten weeks of intensive Shakespeare training in England with our faculty from the professional British theatre. Attendance at several productions in London and Stratford enhance this unique educational opportunity.
