Join us TWS

TWS is a community theatre where all are welcome to learn with us.

Everyone is welcome to take a class or to volunteer at TWS.

To be eligible to perform with us, you are required to become an Active and to take Studio (details below).

Become an Active

We welcome people of all experience levels to join us at the Theatre of Western Springs. We call our dedicated volunteers Actives. TWS Actives do it all: acting, set construction, ticket-taking and everything else it takes to put on show after wonderful show.

To become an Active, you must:

  • Be 18 years or older
  • Volunteer! Actives make the Theatre happen!
  • Purchase a full season subscription

To become eligible for Casting, you must also take Studio 1. All casting at TWS is done by the Play Selection and Casting Committee through a non-audition process.

Studio 1

Studio 1 is “TWS Bootcamp” which consists of twelve sessions during which participants work on and perform monologues and scenes, and learn about the different technical/design areas of the theatre. Studio 1 culminates in a presentation of scenes to which you can invite your family and friends.

Attendance is required at 10 of the 12 sessions. You must be in class the last 2 sessions & present for graduation. Enrollment in Studio is limited.

The cost for the Studio 1 Workshop is $40. The $40 can be applied to the purchase of your full-season subscription. Once you have taken Studio, purchased a subscription, and volunteered you are eligible for casting.

Our next session of Studio 1 is August 5 - 20, 2017. If you have any questions, please feel free to call 708-246-4043 or email us at info@theatrewesternsprings.com.
