The Falcon Theatre
The SEED Falcon Theatre is designed for the promotion and development of the creative and performing arts. Scholar-artists receive instruction and coaching from a resident faculty of artist-educators and are exposed to the various forms of performing (theater, music, dance), fine and visual art forms through education, production, competition, and entertainment.
All students are encouraged to audition regardless of their ability or experiences; this is because The SEED Falcon Theatre is designed to promote and develop the skill set of scholars and/or nurture their skills in the creative and performing arts in a welcoming and familial environment. Scholar-artists, as we call them, that may be reluctant to commit to The Falcon Theatre are encouraged and informed that everyone receives instruction and coaching from a resident faculty of artist-educators, regardless of their ability or years of experience to help them fine tune and hone their artistic abilities.
