Workshop Programs

Build Your Character!

As our most flexible after school theater option, Workshop Programs are skills-building programs...

...designed so that each session stands on its own. This allows for flexible attendance and varying numbers of participants weekly. Workshops emphasize the core values of theater, using creativity and community building to foster life skills that participants will take with them long after the program.

For Us, By Us

For Us, By Us is a devised theater program specifically showcasing High Schoolers unique skill sets and personal identities. Participants work collectively in groups to devise and produce their very own theatrical showcase. Participants will develop their artistic lens through exercises that emphasize holistic thought, empathy, critiquing and implementation. These exercises will culminate in a show written, directed, and produced by the participants. Each showcase is unique to their community, so no two showcases are the same!
