"You all have a truly amazing organization that promotes good character and teamwork. This dedication shows through in the incredible productions that the kids perform...nothing even comes close to the experience she has had with CWorks. So, thank you to you and the staff for promoting character, teamwork, and the love of Christ through performing arts."

Bonnie B., CWorks Parent


Students enrolled in classes (ages 8-19) are eligible to audition for a CharacterWorks season show. CWorks musical productions are always appropriate for the entire family and are an excellent way to introduce children to the arts at a young age. 


CharacterWorks offers a wide variety of classes in drama, voice, dance, and specialty theatre arts training. Each class lasts for two-hours and runs for 8 weeks. During the final class week, a ten-minute showcase is presented by each class for the other students as well as family and friends.


CharacterWorks offers a variety of theatre arts summer camps for students ages 6-19. 2018's Camp registration is now open.


After over 15 years of producing a variety of well-known musicals, CharacterWorks has gathered an impressive inventory and could very well have what you need for your show, party, or event. Costumes, props, and set pieces from over 35 shows are available to rent.
