Theatre and Performing Arts - Summer Workshops
Summer Drama Workshops
Welcome to Northbrook Theatre’s Summer Drama Workshops for children entering grades K-9. If your children love to act, sing and dance, this is the perfect activity for their summer vacation. Our summer workshops are recreational and educational―designed to introduce children to the world of performing arts.
During the four-week workshops, participants spend their days immersed in all aspects of performing arts―studying music, dance and drama every day. Each of the workshops culminates in a final public performance to demonstrate the skills the students have learned. The young students of the theatre are involved in an activity that goes far beyond mere diversion.
Our highly trained and professional staff works to convey the sense of dedication necessary to achieve artistic quality in production. Students learn that performers must embrace discipline, hard work and responsibility to be successful. They also learn the use of vocal, physical and emotional acting techniques necessary for the stage. Most importantly, our staff helps develop a feeling of self-confidence needed to communicate effectively to an audience.
