LCP Performance Division

The Performance Division consists of 20-40 select performers who will be cast in a full production of a main stage show while at the same time attending regular “Company Conservatory Courses” to further enhance their education at an advanced level. To be clear, The LCP Performance Division is not community theater nor professional theater. It is a tuition based, conservatory level educational program that yields a Professional Main Stage Production.

LCP Festival Division Information (Fall/Winter 2016-2017)
  • Generally, rehearsals will be held Saturdays, 1-6PM & may include 3-4 Sundays (January - March)
  • Conservatory classes are scheduled Saturdays, 12-1PM & Wednesdays, 7-9PM (January - March)
    • November-December, rehearsals will be held on Saturdays (4-6PM) and alternating Sundays while Conservatory Classes will be held on alternating Wednesdays (7PM-9PM).
  • The dates for our Tech Week are March 13 - 19, but please be aware that attendance is mandatory for this entire week
  • Our goal is to Double Cast the major roles for the show but this will greatly depend on the number of performers that have been cast in the show. In the event we are able to Double Cast, each actor performing a major role will be featured in multiple performances, and will also serve as the standby for the other cast. Again, Double Casting is not guaranteed!
Conservatory Courses (Performance Division ONLY):
Wednesdays @ 7:00 - 9:00 PM
PHYSICAL ACTOR TRAINING & CONDITIONING (7PM)
Physical Actor Training and Conditioning will help our performers to learn new techniques in which to engage with a performance. This class will help our students with body conditioning to help them be better equipped to handle difficult choreography. It will also give them the skills and training, to enrich their performance through their physicality. Body conditioning and training is important to avoid injury and keeping “show fit”. A great companion to Company Characterization, this class will help the students learn how to engage one of the actor’s most valuable instruments, the body. This class will help improve strength, stamina, flexibility and may also incorporate some improvisation and mime.
COMPANY CHARACTERIZATION (8PM)
An exclusive class for our company members, they will learn the basics of analyzing a script and a character and will apply their new knowledge to this year’s production. This class strongly incorporates the Stanislavski system of acting and will be taught in a college-preparatory fashion. An intense and in-depth study of our script, Characterization will help all of the conservatory members go deeper with their performance.
Saturday @ 12:00 - 1:00 PM
VOCAL CONDITIONING- FULL COMPANY
In any performance strong, healthy voices make for a strong, healthy show. Company members will learn intermediate-to-advancedvocal techniques to help with vocal flexibility, projection, and purity of tone. They will also work specifically on learning to express their characters through the voice while still maintaining healthy singing techniques.

Shop Hours –
Part of deepening your understanding of what goes into a production is exposure to the technical side of a show. All company members will be required to help out with some area of tech, whether it be set building/painting, props, or costumes. This means that on occasion your company member will need to stay later on a Saturday for Shop Hours in which we will address these areas of the production, and each company member will be required to fulfill 5-10 hours of Technical Credits.
