CWorks Performing Arts Classes

Spring class registration is now open!

CharacterWorks offers a variety of musical theater inspired classes in 8-week sessions in fall, winter and spring. Classes are a great way for students to gain valuable theater arts training, develop confidence and make life-long friends.

If you have questions about classes, email Class Director Joy Osborne at joy@cworkstheater.org.

Class Info & Schedule

Each class lasts for 1 hour and 45 minutes per week, runs for 8-weeks for a fall, winter and spring session, and costs $245 per session. All children ages 6-18 (by the last day of class) may register for a class in their age group. In the final week of the class session, classes each perform a 10-minute showcase for family and friends, and other classes in their session. Students enrolled in classes for ages 8-18 are eligible to audition for the one of the session's main stage shows. 

Registration Dates & Times
  • Spring 2024 class registration will open on Wednesday, 1/31 at 12PM noon.
  • NOTE: If you're a new CWorks family, we recommend creating a user account before registration begins, because classes and camps fill quickly and creating an account takes a few minutes.

Academy Classes

*Auditions for the Academy 2023-2024 season have concluded and are now closed. Auditions for the 2024-2025 season will open in June, 2024.* CharacterWorks Academy classes are year-long, application/audition-only classes that offer more focused curriculum and training for those students ready for the next level. Each summer, students have a chance to apply online and gain acceptance before regular class registration opens. Students will meet for three sessions (fall, winter, spring) with an extended full performance at the CharacterWorks Academy Festival in the spring.

"I cannot express my gratitude for this experience enough. It has not only helped develop my knowledge of theater and my acting skills, but it has also helped me develop as a person."
