Creating high quality, fully realized productions to share with the public will always be a large component of Wellesley Theatre Project. However, the training that earns you those productions is just as important.
WTP offers age-specific training classes after school. Both experienced students and first time actors will hone their skills through the study of improvisation, singing, dancing, stage combat, and overall performance artistry. WTP students will gain a competitive edge when it comes to auditioning for other productions, and most importantly, top notch programs at conservatories and universities across the globe.
Read below for more information on our available classes.
From preschool through high school, we offer a wide range of programs for both beginners and experienced stage performers - including classes in acting/drama, musical dance theatre, and voice. Students who are interested in pursuing a WTP Production Class are strongly encouraged to enroll in a WTP Acting Class if they have not already done so.
Workshops & Master Classes
If you can't make one of our semester classes, or if you want to expand your knowledge in a specific area, these classes may be for you! Class offerings are different for Fall, Winter, Spring and Summer, providing lots of opportunity to explore different topics.
Students will explore their creativity and expand their acting, singing, and dancing skills. From audition preparation to Opening Night, all students will learn what it takes to produce a stage show.
Prerequisite: Previous enrollment in a WTP production class and/or current or previous enrollment in a WTP Acting, Dance or Workshop class. Students who have been in a WTP production, but who have not taken a WTP Acting Class are strongly encouraged to do so. At the teacher's discretion, enrollment requirements may be waived. Please feel free to contact us with any questions.
