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 current season subscription

To become eligible for Casting, you must also take TWS 101 (Studio). All casting at TWS is done by the Play Selection and Casting Committee through a non-audition process.

TWS 101 (Studio)

Studio 1 is “TWS Bootcamp” which consists of nine sessions during which participants work on and perform monologues and scenes, and learn about the different technical/design areas of the theatre. TWS 101 culminates in a presentation of scenes to which you can invite your family and friends.
