Are you looking for an art form that develops real world skills like problem-solving, organization, communication, and self-confidence? Perhaps Worcester Academy Theater is for you. Using a collaborative approach, classes and co-curricular opportunities will engage you as an artist and as an audience member as you explore a range of theater genres including classical texts, musicals, and original works.
Your year-long Introduction to Theatre will lead you through a variety of topics, periods, and plays while you create projects, performance pieces, and written work. Then it’s on to a broad array of course offerings including Theater Practicum, Directing, Scene Study, Costume Design (where your work will be featured in our productions), and more.
You’ll create and collaborate in excellently conceived practice/classroom space, in the Worcester Academy Performance Center (a flexible performance space opened in 2016), or in our historic Warner Theater (designed and built by Harry Warner, founding partner of Warner Bros. Studios).
