The Directors’ Workshop is an educational workshop that presents four weekend performances a year in the Cattell Theatre. Ed Wavak is chair of the Directors' Workshop committee and Greg Kolack, TWS Artist-in-Residence, is the Directors' Workshop Mentor.





The Theatre of Western Springs (TWS) presents “Dennis Watkins, 3rd Generation Magician and Mentalist" at 8 p.m. Friday, November 15 at TWS, 4384 Hampton Ave. The show is a fundraiser and part of TWS’s popular Performance Series for the public.

Based in Chicago, Watkins’ critically acclaimed one-man-show, "The Magic Parlour,” has been running at Chicago's legendary Palmer House Hotel for eight years. His work has been seen on FOX, WGN, ABC, CBS and the A&E Network.

In 2017, Watkins was a featured performer on the hit show "Penn & Teller: Fool Us." In addition to performing "The Magic Parlour" five times weekly, Watkins creates world-class magical entertainment for organizations and private clients looking to make their most important events unforgettable.
