Professional Training for Teens at WFT !


Aladdin at wheelock

A note from your friendly blogger . . .

I personally cannot wait for spring vacation and summer camps and intensives at WFT! I have had the pleasure of teaching with WFT since 2005, and of all the theatres I have worked for, it is by far my favorite. There is a reason why teachers and students come back to WFT year after year, and it’s not the glam of performances! It’s the connections made with other artists, with our community, and even within ourselves.

Interested in taking a class? We look forward to seeing you at the theatre!

Wheelock Family Theatre's education program is sustained by both a professional theatre staff and an institution of higher learning, Wheelock College.

The result is a dynamic and exciting drama curriculum for youngsters between the ages of 6 and 17 that teaches drama skills AND connects those skills to child development theory and practice.

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

WFT designs a scope-and-sequence of class offerings within each age group so that students are consistently asked to build upon what came before.  Experienced students can then audition for Wheelock Family Theatre's advanced performance programs and mainstage productions.
