Academy Productions

WCT Academy Productions are a theatre training program that gives students the opportunity to experience the fun and excitement of participating in and creating a full musical production while learning skills that can be applied on and off stage - critical thinking, collaboration, mindfulness, and more.

About Academy Productions

In a WCT Academy Production experience, every student is guaranteed a role in the production. We ask each student to audition for the role they will receive in this supportive environment. Leading up to the audition, students will have theatre classes designed to develop and strengthen their core stage skills, as they approach the audition date with the goal of  feeling prepared and confident in the audition process. 

Students participate in the full rehearsal process and are part of bringing a production to life from the first rehearsal to the final performances for audiences.  

Academy Productions Registration

WCT Academy Productions are tuition-based programs run by professional theatre artists and designers that provide our students with a hands-on experience in the theatre.

Family Volunteer Opportunities

A WCT Academy production is not just for the students, it is an opportunity for families to work together to help their children flourish on stage. Families have found it to be a great experience to work with one another year after year in this exciting program. 

Families of participating students are asked to contribute at least four to six hours of volunteering on this production, and you can find ways to volunteer below:

  • Costumes/Props/Set building and painting
  • Program design
  • Ushering and concession sales
  • Backstage supervision
  • Organizing and leading the closing performance cast party at WCT

Cancellation Policy

If WCT cancels a production for any reason, students enrolled will receive a full refund or credit for future class.

Students cancelling registration will be charged a 10% administration fee (minimum $10 per class) on refunds for cancellations up through the first day of class or rehearsal. Instead of a refund, students can also choose to transfer their full tuition to a different Academy class.

If students cancel after the second session/rehearsal or later, a refund will be pro-rated accordingly.
