The Boston University Summer Theatre Institute 2022 is a five-week pre-conservatory experience for highly motivated high school theatre artists. Designed to mirror the first year BFA experience within the College of Fine Arts School of Theatre at Boston University, the Institute allows all participants the opportunity to test their interests and abilities in a professional training environment. Students earn 4.0 college credits for their coursework in acting, design, theatre for social change, improvisation, and other theatre techniques, as well as immersive theatre workshops and the creation of an original piece of theatre with members of their ensemble.

Throughout the program, students engage with Boston University and the professional artistic community throughout the greater Boston area. Students graduate from BUSTI having honed their technique, depth of intellectual and artistic questioning, playfulness in collaboration, and ability to tell a dynamic story through the theatrical medium.
