TWS Studio – Summer 2024

Registration Now Open!

TWS Studio Information

TWS Studio is a three-week theatre class that serves as an introduction to The Theatre of Western Springs. We will use exercises and improvisation to work on basic acting concepts and then apply them to scenes and monologues which you will present on stage for friends and family during your final class session. Interested students will also work on short songs and a group number! We will also let you know how things work at TWS in terms of volunteering, casting, and anything else we can think of. Anyone 18 or older can register and all levels of experience are welcome. -- Participants NOT interested in performing will be introduced to several technical areas of the theatre and work “backstage” for the final presentation. Non-Actors will have a different schedule to be worked out with the instructor.

You must be 18 years old or older to enroll.
