Gilbert Actor Theatre Ensemble

The Gilbert Gate is a competitive program devoted to young actor’s training, ages 16-25. The “Gate” represents the passage from young actor to adult actor. 

Our program is dedicated to performance training in Movement, Voice/Speech, Scene Study, and Acting. While in the program the student will become grounded in a myriad of period styles including Restoration comedy and Shakespeare, as well as acting for film and television, audition prep, and musical theatre. With this training, students will learn about the business side of Acting along with college entry counseling, a major part of the program. 

The Gate Program consists of 2 units: 
1. Acting for Classical or Contemporary plays
2. Acting for Film
Students will complete each unit with a performance/showcase of their work. These performances will be open to the public.
