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!

2019 Children’s Theatre Workshop

Now in its 36th year, the IVT Summer Children’s Theatre Workshop continues to create quality children’s theatre enjoyed by participants, family, and friends. Students will be introduced to the many facets of theatre including building sets, props and understanding the basics of putting on a show. Not only will they rehearse the play but they will also participate in theatre games and activities that introduce the basics of theatre. These games develop poise, voice, confidence and movement and create an understanding of the characters for the play. This year we are excited to bring to the stage The Sasparilla Kid and the Bally Hoo Belle Gang written by Alethia Hummel.   Every child is cast in a part adapted to fit their specific talents and needs that allow them to explore, imagine, create and have fun!
