Benefits of HTC

Hi there! I have recently been admitted for HTC Theater and am looking to hear some honest opinions about the school and program while I’m making my decision. I am pleased with what I have heard about the rigor of the HTC program academically, but I don’t have very much knowledge about the intensiveness of the theatre program; I am highly involved in high school drama and I’m worried that I would spend more time studying than hands on production work. I am interested to hear about others’ experiences with the HTC program in general or OU theatre. I am looking at two out-of-state private schools as well with top-ranked theatre programs, but the scholarships at either don’t compare to the Ohio Premiere award so I have some tough financial decisions to make… thanks for any perspectives or insight you have to offer!
