The primary focus of our education program is supporting a child’s intellectual, emotional, creative, and social development through drama activities. Several of our students have enjoyed prominent national careers (such as Academy Award-winner Matt Damon). However, we believe true success is not measured by fame, but through instilling in our students lifelong values of creativity, compassion, and respect for others.
WFT audition based Performance Intensives are advanced performance classes that will showcase WFT student work with a free performance on Friday August 15 at the Wheelock Family Theatre.
