Is your child ready for something more advanced? Do they love theatre and just can’t get enough of it? Then this exciting class is just what they need. Designed to engage your student in a more professional style production, this class challenges students to take a close look on how to develop a character throughout the rehearsal process. We teach students how to “rip” apart their scripts inside and out, fully commit to a character from beginning to end, and learn the importance of working as an ensemble to create and produce their own show. This class is a full semester and will be given two performances open for the public to purchase tickets. For this advanced class we rent out different theatre spaces around town to give the students a chance to create a full production. Each semester we challenge the students with either a stage acting based class or a musical theatre based class.

Summer Camps 2015
Sorry, camps are full!
Live Theatre Workshop's summer camps are one week music, theatre, dancing, and technical theatre experience. Everyday students will work with a choreographer on two to three dance numbers, a vocal coach on musical theatre style singing, and with professional teaching artists who will lead them through the process of producing a play. All students will be assigned a role and will learn acting technique and theatre skills through the process of rehearsing their character for a final performance of their play and musical numbers. Camps are arranged by age and grade level-all skill levels are welcome. All of our instructors are trained to introduce and teach in a way that makes the entire experience fun and educational in a safe and low-pressure environment. While students will be very busy learning lines, acting, singing, dancing, building sets, and producing their play; there is plenty of time for acting improvisation and theatre games. Our goal here at LTW is to focus on the process of the putting together a production. We feel all students should understand what it takes to put on a show from start to finish with a focus on teamwork, personal responsibility, and thinking outside of the box.
