About her experience in the program Stanicki says," Attending the Rutgers Mason Gross Conservatory program for the last three years has been an amazing experience.  I have learned from the best teachers and will take everything I learned with me to a Musical Theater program in college."

"Words cannot describe how I feel about this being my last year, said Heim. "After being in RHSMTA for 4 years, it truly has shaped the performer and artist I've become today. It's very sad to leave it all behind, but I'm grateful for the tools all my teachers and directors have given me throughout my experience here that'll help me succeed in this field of work.I would also like to thank Kenneth Faulkner-Alexander, my voice teacher and one of my biggest supporters."

The Rutgers High School Musical Theater Academy, now in its fourth year, is offered through the Mason Gross Extension Division. The academy aims to provide talented high school students from the tri-state area with the skills needed to excel in the professional world of musical theater. Students, who are accepted by audition, undergo rigorous training in dance (jazz and ballet), voice, acting and stage performance. Additionally, conservatory students receive audition and industry coaching as well as technical feedback from New York theater professionals. The focus of the program is to teach all aspects of the craft, including choreography and physical storytelling, character and scene development, vocal technicality and music theory.
