Children's Theater Workshop


Theater education for kids in grades 1 through 7 at the Park Playhouse

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.  New students are accepted each fall. The season begins with Creative Dramatics classes (grades 1-7) and Stagecraft workshops (grades 4-7 only), ending in December with a demonstration class for family and friends. The students return in January for the spring session, which concludes with a fully mounted production in late March/April.

Spring 2020 Session Info:

Rehearsals are 1 hour long and take place from 5PM to 7PM on Tuesdays or Wednesdays. There are two casts, one for the Tuesday group and one for the Wednesday group. The play will be performed the last weekend in March. New students are accepted only in the fall.

Tuition $95 for the session of Creative Dramatics or Stagecraft. Financial aid is available if the registration fee will create a hardship. 

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 while building confidence.

In Stagecraft, 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 stagecraft students enroll in both classes.

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.
