Classes at Writers Theatre
WT Education will host classes online for the Summer session! We are thrilled to continue offering classes for young people; the perfect way to introduce young people to the arts through creative and active collaboration.
Currently, all classes will be streamed online at their regularly scheduled times. Classes will resume onsite at Writers Theatre on a tentative basis, pending restrictions regarding COVID-19 and the "Shelter In Place" order put out by the State of Illinois, as well as the personal decisions by leadership at Writers Theatre. If classes resume in person, students have the option of attending the course in person or continuing online, pending the discretion of the parent or legal guardian.
