Blackstone Academy Summer Program Canceled

Dec 24, 2017


We regret to inform you that the highly anticipated Blackstone Academy Summer Program, organized by A Quest Actors Studio, has unfortunately been canceled for this year. This program, which has been running for several years, has provided countless aspiring performers with a unique opportunity to refine their craft and showcase their talent. In this article, we aim to provide you with a comprehensive overview of the reasons behind this regrettable decision and offer alternative options for those seeking to further their performing arts journey.

Reasons for Cancellation

The decision to cancel the Blackstone Academy Summer Program was not made lightly. Various factors have contributed to this unfortunate outcome. Firstly, the ongoing global pandemic has presented significant challenges in ensuring the safety and well-being of all participants. Considering the nature of the program, which involves close proximity and collaboration, it was deemed best to prioritize the health of our attendees and staff.

Additionally, the uncertainties surrounding travel restrictions, venue availability, and other logistical issues have posed significant hurdles in planning and organizing a seamless experience. We believe in providing our participants with nothing but the best, and given the circumstances, we could not guarantee the level of excellence synonymous with the Blackstone Academy Summer Program.

Exploring Alternative Options

As a passionate performing arts community, we understand the disappointment and frustration caused by this cancellation. However, we are committed to ensuring that aspiring performers still have access to valuable resources and opportunities for growth.

In lieu of the Blackstone Academy Summer Program, A Quest Actors Studio will be offering a range of alternative options to support performers in their artistic journey:

1. Virtual Workshops and Masterclasses

Harnessing the power of technology, we will be hosting a series of virtual workshops and masterclasses led by experienced industry professionals. These online sessions will cover a wide range of performing arts disciplines, allowing participants to refine their skills from the comfort of their own homes.

2. Personalized Coaching Sessions

We recognize the importance of individualized attention when it comes to honing one's craft. A Quest Actors Studio will be offering personalized coaching sessions to provide performers with tailored guidance. Whether it's acting, dancing, singing, or any other performing arts aspect, our expert coaches will work closely with participants to help them unlock their full potential.

3. Collaborative Projects

We believe that collaboration is at the heart of the performing arts. To foster a sense of community and togetherness, we will be facilitating collaborative projects where participants can work alongside fellow performers to create unique and inspiring artistic pieces.


While the cancellation of the Blackstone Academy Summer Program is undoubtedly disappointing, we are fully committed to supporting and nurturing aspiring performers. The safety and well-being of our participants have always been our top priority, and we are excited to explore new avenues for growth and artistic development in these challenging times.
