Time to Sign Up for Winter Drama Classes!


The magical time of year has come again, with or without Santa . . .

It’s time to sign up  for winter classes and workshops!! Wheelock Family Theatre provides a dynamic and exciting drama curriculum for young actors (ages 6–17) that teaches drama skills while connecting those skills to your child's overall development.


Wheelock Family Theatre is the only theatre in New England with an education program sustained by both a professional theatre staff and an institution of higher learning, Wheelock College. The result is a dynamic and exciting drama curriculum that teaches drama skills and connects those skills to child development theory and practice.

Theatre artist-educators at WFT create challenging drama and movement games, improvisations, and exercises that help kids learn not just the HOW but also the WHY of onstage thoughts, feelings, and actions.

We do our best to make all our classes accessible in every sense of the word: welcoming and celebrating differences, adapting to various learning styles, and challenging veterans and newcomers alike. While we encourage students to repeat classes, particularly at the youngest, creative dramatics level, we also thoughtfully design a scope-and-sequence of class offerings within each age group so that students are consistently asked to build upon what came before. Early creative dramatics classes lead to introductory acting, movement, and improvisation classes, then to specialty classes such as musical theatre, stage combat, and scene work. Experienced students can then audition for Wheelock Family Theatre's advanced performance programs and mainstage productions.

So, take a look at our Winter Classes and sign your youngster up for the Wheelock Family Theatre program that matches his or her interests.

Note that teen classes are now usually two-hour sessions over a five-week period to allow for more depth and connection. If you would like our help in selecting the best choice(s) for your child, please contact John Bay at 617-879-2252 or

Yay! Hope to see you in rehearsal,

Beth Peters
