SLT Academy Overview


Artistic Director: Charles Eurydice Gray  814-723-7231


Struthers Library Theatre is building the SLT Academy one program, one instructor and one curriculum at a time. The long-range goal is to make SLT Academy an arts and education destination, bustling with responsible students trained in the theatre arts under the guidance of local and visiting artists. Students will develop their own productions, attend training classes, earn professional internships, compete in musical theatre competitions, assemble professional networks with working artists and complete projects of benefit to our students’ futures, the theatre and our community. Students will be trained in theatre from the Greeks to cutting-edge practices, preparing them for successful futures, ranging from an arts avocation to a happy, arts-invested life. The Academy will also become a formal theatre school, drawing tuition students for specific, intensive sessions linked to performance opportunities. Performances will benefit students and regional audiences.


Currently, SLT Academy programs include:

• Advanced Performance Training/Community Outreach/Competition Troupe

• Allegheny Regional Theatre Experience (ARTE)

• Exploratory Internships

• Professional Internships

• Teaching Assistant Program

• Youth-With-Adult Saturday Technical Theatre Workshops

• Arts In Education (AIE) • Summer Intensive Workshops
