About Our Theatre Workshops

Teach the children, and they will teach the adults.

Just like watching parades, enjoying ice cream, taking a long-planned vacation or cooling off at the local swimming holes, Indian Valley Theatre’s Children’s and Teen Workshops are a grand summertime tradition.

IVT offers children and youth, from incoming first graders to graduating high school seniors, a fun, safe and rewarding atmosphere to learn about theatre and build their confidence performing. Whether this is their first theatre experience or they are already comfortable taking command of the stage, IVT’s Summer Workshops are for everyone!

Workshops are not just a summer tradition – they’re a long-standing ritual of IVT’s treasured history!  As part of their dream to bring local, community theatre alive in the Fox Valley area, IVT’s founding members wanted to make sure that kids enjoyed the stage, too.  When IVT’s star was born, so were the summer workshops!

Now in their 33rd year, the IVT Summer Children’s Theatre Workshop continues to create quality children’s theatre. Every child is cast in a part adapted to fit their specific talents and needs.  They explore. . . imagine. . . create and best of all, have fun!

Children’s Workshop brings kids entering up to 6th grade an exciting, culture-rich experience and the complete world of the theatre arts to their fingertips.  Students are put to work building sets, props and understanding the basics of putting on a show. Sure they rehearse, but at the same time play, theatre games that help develop poise, voice, confidence, movement, and an understanding of their characters.

For the older budding actors, (entering 7th grade through graduating high schoolers), IVT offers the popular Tween/Teen Theater Workshop.  In this rigorous but relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere, students will explore their inner talents, develop self-confidence, work on team-building, and find in themselves all the grit they can muster to rehearse and perform a full length play.

Our director, teachers, choreographers, art teacher and vocal instructor are qualified educators, who strive to ensure that each child received equalized instruction and opportunity.
