WT Youth Council is a group of passionate Chicagoland high school students who want to learn more about the art and business of theatre from the inside. Students will have the opportunity to work with theatre professionals, attend live productions at WT and around Chicago, participate in workshops with guest artists, and meet other teens who share a passion for theatre performance and production!
WT Youth Council hosts biweekly meetings on Thursdays. All meetings and events will occur at Writers Theatre in Glencoe (just off the UP-N Metra) unless otherwise specified. Members are expected to attend all dates and times below. If you anticipate needing to miss more than two sessions, please consider if this program is a good fit for you. No previous theatre experience is necessary and membership is free of cost.
Applications for the 2022/23 Youth Council are closed Please check back in August 2023 for next year's application!
