LTW's Education Program

Please see an update from Director of Children's Programming Amanda Gremel regarding changes to summer classes and camps as a result of COVID-19

We challenge each of our students individually and as an ensemble. There are many skill sets to be learned as an actor and we have created classes that help your children and teens advance to each new level. To achieve this goal, it's important to have each student in the proper grade level to learn and be challenged most effectively. Below you will find our registration listings. Please look closely at the grade levels in the listings below to determine the best fit for your c hild.

Questions: Contact our Director of Children’s Programming Amanda Gremel or Assistant Director of Children’s Programming Stephen Frankenfield.


LTW's June Online Summer Classes

LTW has a generous donor who has paid for all students $25 deposits for their online classes!

We have worked very hard to adjust all of our games, activites, and exercises to be taught and learned online. While we can’t be in the same room with all our students, we can still achieve our goals for each class. We are very excited to help you explore new forms of theatre.

All classes are held via Zoom

As we move forward and explore our theatre world online, more and more publishing houses are offering online shows to be performed. In this first-of-its kind musical, each actor will receive a 1-2 minute scene/song to rehearse, video record, and upload. When all the videos are played in order, they tell the hilarious story of a group of passionate students desperate to keep their annual musical alive…online! This show will be presented as theatre for young audiences and we will have a YouTube premiere watch party inviting all families of our LTW community to see!

 Summer Camps 2020


Online registration is currently not available. At this time, we are asking everyone to call or email about summer camp registration.

Live Theatre Workshop's summer camps are a one to two week music, theatre, dancing, and technical theatre experience. Every day, students will work with a choreographer on two to three dance numbers, a vocal coach on musical theatre style singing, and with professional teaching artists who will lead them through the process of producing a play. All students will be assigned a role and will learn acting technique and theatre skills through the process of rehearsing their character for a final performance of their play and musical numbers. Camps are arranged by age and grade level--all skill levels are welcome. All of our instructors are trained to introduce and 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, singing, dancing, building sets, and producing their play, there is plenty of time for acting improvisation and theatre games. Our goal here at LTW is to focus on the process of the putting together a production. 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, friendships, and thinking outside of the box.

For more information on summer camps or camp availability please email Amanda Gremel at amanda.g@livetheatreworkshop.org or call 520-327-4242.
