Our goal is to create programs that achieve substantial and lasting contributions to the future of the arts. Every CAP21 endeavor embraces the following values:
The CAP21 process of training integrates three crucial components of the Actor: the Instrument, the Craftsman, and the Collaborator. The training of the physical instrument of the actor—the body and the voice—is the groundwork of the technique. Training the craftsman of the actor develops the artist and the storyteller. The collaborator is the third and most crucial component—the ability of the actor to work together with other actors, directors and writers in order to create an ensemble to tell a theatrical musical story. Traditional forms of Acting, Dance, Music and Literature are the base from which the foundation of technique is built for the actor in musical theatre.
The Methodology of the training process enables the actor to work with and to be guided by top mentors and professionals in the industry. The CAP21 faculty works as a team. Actors are evaluated at the beginning of each training program and goals are set for the student's work in each class. At the end of program or semester every actor is evaluated by the entire faculty in class work demonstrations.
