Children's Theatre of Winnetka Logo

Children’s Theatre of Winnetka is a not-for-profit, volunteer organization dedicated to promoting theatrical experiences for New Trier Township children, grades 4 - 8. Children participate both onstage and backstage in two productions annually in the fall and spring.

Workshop Description

4th – 8th Grade Workshop Details:

4th – 8th Grade Workshops will rehearse for 4 weeks with plans to perform the scenes to a small audience in Matz Hall at the end of the session. Workshops plan to hold all rehearsals outside (weather permitting).

4th – 8th Grade Workshop Timing: One-hour rehearsals on Tuesdays and Thursdays for 4 weeks beginning Tuesday, April 27th and ending Thursday, May 20th. Performance currently planned for the evening of Sunday, May 23rd.

CTW will be following all current health safety guidelines, including a health screening survey on contact days. Covid-19 guidelines will require us to limit the size of our workshops. For this reason, the workshops will be open to small groups of children grades 4 - 8 who have been cast in a CTW production or were in 2019’s A Christmas Carol. If space is available after initial registration, the workshops will open to all in grades 4-8 in New Trier Township. In addition, actors may only register for ONE workshop and medical grade masks will be required for rehearsals and performances.

Aaron Umsted will be directing our 8th graders in a workshop production of The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee. This workshop will also begin on April 27th and registration is complete. Reminder, IF your child has already signed up for this 8th-grade workshop production, please do not register for any of the workshops below.

We will continue to have more details to share so please check out the CTW website for updates www.childrenstheatrewinnetka.com
