The Mini Players

An advanced performance class for students who are ready for a bit more commitment.

This enchanting class is for students who have some experience in theatre, and have a basic understanding of the terms and skills that go into theatre arts. We incorporate games and theater lessons that relate to the production they are rehearsing, to help better understand their characters and movements on stage and to enhance their performance. This class runs a full semester to give students time to learn what it takes to put on a more professional show with a final performance open to the public to purchase tickets. Each semester we challenge the students with either a stage acting based class or a musical theatre based class.

Fun with Stage Makeup

A fun new class dedicated to expanding on your students' creativity.

Stage makeup can be fun but it requires technique. In this 8 week class, students will explore different makeup styles like basic stage, old age, fantasy, special effects, and animals. Students will get their own stage makeup starter kit to use throughout this class and still have leftovers to keep practicing, even on the whole family! This class will be held outside in our courtyard area to offer an open air space with plenty of room to be socially distant while being unmasked as your students explore their creative side in stage makeup.

The Tween Players

An advanced performance class for middle school students.

This class is the next step up from our Mini Players. Students will be able to take their basic knowledge of theatre skills and use them in the next level. They will learn how to analyze their characters and how to connect with each other more on stage by using “beats” and “intentions”. This class runs a full semester which allows us to really work one on one with each student to reach their individual goals.

The Junior Players

An advanced performance class for high school students.

Is your student ready for something more advanced? Do they love theatre and just can’t get enough of it? Then this exciting class is just what they need. Designed to engage your student in a more professional style production, this class challenges students to take a close look on how to develop a character throughout the rehearsal process. We teach students how to “rip” apart their scripts inside and out, fully commit to a character from beginning to end, and learn the importance of working as an ensemble to create and produce their own show. This class is a full semester and will be given two performances open for the public to purchase tickets. Each semester we challenge the students with either a stage acting based class or a musical theatre based class.

One Week Camps for Youth

All of our camps are an amazing and intense week of producing, acting, dancing, playing improvisation games, and exploring the technical side of the theatre arts. This is one of the best educational theatre experiences available! Camps are arranged by age and grade level and all skill levels are welcome! All of our instructors are trained to teach in a way that makes the entire experience fun and educational in a safe and low-pressure environment. While students will be very busy learning lines, acting, dancing, building sets, and producing their play; there is plenty of time for acting improvisation and theatre games. LTW's goal is to focus on the process of putting together a production and building a diverse community of young artists. We feel all students should understand what it takes to put on a show from start to finish with a focus on teamwork, personal responsibility, and thinking outside of the box. On the last day of camp, they will get to show off all their hard work with a showcase for their families.
