RESERVING A REHEARSAL OR VOICE STUDIO

Rehearsal and Voice Studios are designed to offer support, when available, for audition preparations or independent practice/rehearsal. They are not designed for group projects or outside productions. Use of AMDA Rehearsal and Voice Studios is a privilege that extends only to AMDA alumni. NON-AMDA affiliated participants cannot be approved for campus access.

Only alumni who have submitted their COVID-19 vaccination records and have received a confirmation of clearance are eligible for campus access. Cleared alumni should reserve Rehearsal and Voice Studios through the AMDA Student Portal before visiting campus. Studios are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Priority is always given to current students and faculty.
