About Wagon Wheel Jr.
In 2012, the Wagon Wheel Theatre launched a new program for kids and teens: Wagon Wheel Jr. This is your child’s chance to perform on the legendary Wagon Wheel Theatre stage. Participants will learn to create, build, and perform in a quality theatrical experience while working with a professional production staff.
Creative Play is 3-day camp filled with creative play for young actors who have finished grades K-2.
SummerPlay is a 5-day camp that will culminate in a performance showcasing the talents of the students. Young actors who have finished Grades 3- 5 are welcome.
Theatre Workshop is a similar 5-day camp, for young actors who have finished grades 6-7
Musical Theater Workshop is an 11-day camp that prepares young actors to perform in a fully realized production. Students who have finished grades 8-12 are welcome.
This theatrical workshop is tailored to young actors ages 7-9. Over the course of seven days, participants will learn the basics of acting and performance through theater games, improvisational exercises, and rehearsals for a short production. Students will become more confident speaking in front of an audience and develop a heightened sense of focus and teamwork as they work together to create a performance--all while creating new friendships and gaining experience in the theatrical arts. Most of all, we'll have fun!
As part of the workshop, students will be involved in all design aspects of a culminating performance, including making their own props, costumes, and scenery. This performance will take place on the Wagon Wheel stage and will be open to friends and family.
Youth Dance Classes
This very successful 6 week class will teach basics in musical theatre movement and style. These classes are geared towards giving youth with little or no dance experience a foundation in movement through musical theatre. It will also give the more experienced dancers the opportunity to learn fun and engaging dance combinations that will help them as they continue to grow in the performing arts. We had over 45 students in our first classes last year, so slots will fill up fast!
Wagon Wheel Jr. Productions
Wagon Wheel Jr. produces several musicals throughout the school year. All students are encouraged to audition!
