What is CTW?

Children’s Theatre of Winnetka is an award winning,  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. 

CTW is about more than performing.  It's about making friends and memories. -CTW Actor       
CTW taught me to be a better person on and off the stage.  I am grateful for the wonderful training and friendships I made. -CTW Alum
What I’ve noticed is how theatre has built resilience in my daughter.  You don’t always get the part you want, but you cheer on your friends when they do. Such a great life lesson. -CTW Parent
Having CTW in our community is such a wonderful resource.  The quality of coaching provided to the kids is amazing!  -CTW Parent
CTW helped me find a love for the arts and
build my confidence. -CTW Alum

Reflecting through the years on the friendships made, makes us eager to get back on stage.  CTW has pivoted to safely keep kids engaged in musical theatre while staying socially distanced.
