For Spring 2021, In lieu of a fully-staged musical production, CTW is offering these Musical Theatre Workshops for all 4-8th graders
Spring Musical Theatre Workshops
Our CTW Directors are teaching six small group workshops, each as a four week session culminating with a live performance for families in Matz Hall the evening of May 23.
Our Directors will work with the CTW kids to develop their acting, singing, and dancing skills using featured songs from some of our favorite musicals. We're thrilled with the creative modifications they made to keep the kids engaged in the musical theatre experience they love. We hope to be fully back on stage soon!
One hour rehearsals 4-8pm Tuesdays and Thursdays,
April 27-May 22 with a final performance May 23rd.
Safety precautions followed
CTW will be following all current health safety guidelines, including a health screening survey on contact days. Medical-grade masks will be required for rehearsals and performances, and rehearsals will be held outside.
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.
If space is available after initial registration, the workshops will open to all in grades 4-8 in New Trier Township
