Education and Outreach

WCT’s Education and Outreach program has been a part of the theatre’s culture since 1957. Classes in theatre arts education; outreach programs like the Civic Broadway Singers, the Civic Senior Players, and the ACT Outreach classes; and theatre performance opportunities like our Community Partners Productions, our ACT Productions, and our PlayMakers productions all add benefits to the community and opportunities for participants of all ages that are priceless.

Academy at Civic Theatre

Academy at Civic Theatre (ACT) offers arts education programs for ages 4-19, there are classes in improvisation, comedy, character development, dance, and acting. Classes are held over Spring and Summer school breaks. WCT is expanding the program to quadruple the number of classes offered over the next four years. Students who are flexing their creative muscles in the present also are developing into a population of citizens with a heightened sense of cultural literacy. These same students will be future participants in the theatre, patrons, donors, volunteers, and ambassadors for the arts.
