Sign up now for kids’ acting workshops (starts 3/7)

January 29th, 2017

Registration has begun for aspiring performers in grades K-8.

Young performers will learn basic onstage and acting techniques while they develop their imagination and creativity.  All children will have a blast as they explore acting through a series of theater and improvisational games.  This ensemble building class will foster each student’s self esteem and help him/her become an independent thinker both on and off the stage.

Sessions will run March 7 – April 18* on Tuesday afternoons at these times:

  • Grades K–4:  4 p.m. to 4:55 p.m
  • Grades 5–8:  5 p.m. to 5:55 p.m.

* There is no class March 28 due to spring break; makeup date, if necessary, will be April 25.

$100 per session per child

Note: Classes are subject to change based on enrollment.

Please contact Elyse Wadzinski for more information at  or call 630.260.1820 and leave a message about registration.
