I am thrilled to welcome you to the web home of the Southeastern Summer Theatre Institute, formally the Savannah Summer Theatre Institute. For the past eight summers, SSTI has trained aspiring performers in the skill sets required to work in the world of professional theatre. The 7-hour rehearsal days are tests to the stamina, endurance and passion of the students involved. After only three weeks, the cast presents a product to the public that rivals many productions that prepare months in advance.
Like any profession, the art of theatre adheres to a strict set of regulations and standards that are often times impossible to teach in a school or community theatre environment. However, a summer camp offers the ideal opportunity to replicate professional theatre standards. If you’re looking for kayaks, cabins and 200 campers in a session, we’re not the program for you. But if you want focused training from a talented staff and a room filled with fellow cast members who’d rather be rehearsing than kayaking anyway, this is your home. In fact, we won’t ever even label you a ‘camper.’ We are more serious than that. At SSTI, you’re a Cast Member.
I hope that you will spend some time looking around our website, watching our videos, and looking at our galleries. These elements are all designed to give you, our prospective cast member, insight into the magic that is created annually on our campus. We have created the summer theatre experience that we always wanted to attend. I hope you’ll join us this summer. Register Today. Change Your Tomorrow.
