Making It Up As We Go!

Improvisation is a great way to learn how to think on your feet more quickly, build your listening and communication skills, and have a lot of fun while you’re at it. Improv is, essentially, acting without a script. Each class is designed for a specific age group to create a safe and supportive environment for the participants. Absolutely no experience is necessary!

Financial Aid

WCT Academy Scholarship Program
In honor of John Cramer
John Cramer was the Managing Artistic Director of WCT from June 2003 to February 2019.  During that time, he worked tirelessly to build a thriving education program.  In 2008, he created the full time position of Education and Outreach Administrator.  One of the goals of this newly expanding education program was to provide affordable and accessible opportunities to the entire community.  To that end, he helped develop a financial assistance program which, by the time John left in 2019, was providing $10,000 in scholarships and free or reduced tuition programming.
On June 10, 2021, this program was rededicated as the WCT Academy Scholarship Program in honor of John Cramer. Waukesha Civic Theatre maintains a strong commitment to making our Academy and Academy Productions programs accessible to all students – regardless of financial circumstances. Need-based financial aid is available to any student. Download our Financial Assistance Registration Form HERE
