PERFORM. TOUR. TRAVEL. EXPLORE.
What is Triple Threat?
The Acting Studio’s Triple Threat Conservatory is an exciting opportunity for students to train with professionals in the industry, perform both locally and abroad, tour in the summer to exciting locations, and give back to their community through our outreach program. Triple Threat is an audition-based program, and students must be at least 8 years old. If accepted, students will be placed into classes that will help them grow in the three disciplines of musical theatre: Acting, Dance and Voice. Certain students will be eligible to advance to our Elite Veteran status! More details below!
- Each student is provided with both required and recommended courses once accepted into the program. These requirements and recommendations are uniquely tailored to promote growth and improvement in certain areas, while strengthening skills across all disciplines.
- The basic Triple Threat Conservatory package requires at least 1 hr Acting Class, 1 hr Dance Class, and 1 hr Voice Class (or 30-min. private instruction) per week. However, Elite Veterans may be required to take more.
- Please keep in mind that younger students must be able to handle three hours of classes per week minimum, in addition to rehearsals. You are not, however, required to go on summer tour in order to be in the program (but it’s a lot of fun!).

For information on 2021 tour itinerary and pricing, please contact the general manager by email here.
Triple Threat students enjoy discounted package pricing on their monthly tuition, depending on the classes they take. Please click the button below for details on available packages.
Triple Threat students learn and rehearse a 20-30 minute medley show throughout the year, which will be our performance while on tour. We expect students to work hard, learn complex dance combos and multi-part harmony, and practice on their own time in order to keep us on schedule.
Prior to tour, we have a week of daily rehearsals, followed by a Friends & Family performance to showcase what we’ve put together! This is always a huge hit, and all Acting Studio students are invited to attend!
While on tour, students will perform for the public twice. We have performed at both Disneyland and Disney World, as well as at the famed Neighborhood Playhouse and the Intrepid Air & Space Museum in New York City.
