Childrens Theater Workshop

The Children's Theater Workshop program is run by the Burlington Players under the sponsorship of the Burlington
Recreation Department. The program began in 1973 and is run by the Burlington Players and Winnmere Family Theater. The year begins in the Fall with Creative Dramatics classes (grades 1-7) and Stagecraft workshops (grades 4-7 only), ending in December with a class demonstration.  For those who return, the program resumes in January and concludes with a stage production in late March/April.

Classes are 1 hour long and take place from 6PM to 7PM and 7PM to 8PM on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.  The fall session is 8 weeks long.

Creative Dramatics, open to kids in grades 1 - 7,  helps develop imagination, voice, body movement, story telling, character creation and other performance skills.  Working on a show teaches team work and cooperation wile building confidence.

In Stage Craft, open to kids in grades 4 - 7, students get to "learn by doing" by working on projects in the technical aspect of theater: set design, costumes, make-up, lighting, sound, etc.  Students run the state-of-the-art equipment in our booth for the spring production and support the show as stage and house crew as needed.  The majority of our stage craft students enroll in both classes.



Fall Enrollment for CTW Students will be
Sept 26 & 27, 2017 from
6:00-7:30 PM

Creative Dramatics helps develop imagination, voice, body movement, storytelling, and other performance skills. Working on a show teaches teamwork and cooperation while building confidence.

In Stagecraft, participants get to "learn by doing" in scenery design and construction, lighting, sound, etc., using the
actual Park Playhouse equipment.
