Fall registration begins August 25 at 5:00pm! Space is limited!

CharacterWorks offers a wide variety of theater classes during the fall session under the new guidelines. 

Classes are a great way for students to gain valuable theater arts training, develop confidence and make life-long friends! 

CharacterWorks Fall Session - The Next Stage

The CWorks staff is thrilled to offer in-person and online opportunities in the fall of 2020 for students to continue to grow in the performing arts. 

At this time, we know that many families are looking forward to getting back to CharacterWorks activities, while others may not feel comfortable doing so yet. We understand and respect both of these perspectives and any others between, and look forward to the day when everyone can comfortably come together again.

What’s the Same?
CharacterWorks is still dedicated to the mission of honoring Christ, building character, and creating community through quality theatre arts education and performances, and we look forward to carrying out this mission under new guidelines. Classes are still offered once a week for eight weeks. Students enrolled in a fall class are still eligible to audition for one our fall 2020 outdoor musical production of Getting to Know...The Sound of Music. Your CWorks staff and teachers are excited to see our students once again!

What’s Changed?
The CWorks staff has adapted our typical CWorks schedule and structure to accommodate for new health and safety procedures. CharacterWorks has developed these procedures in accordance to CDC, Virginia state reopening, and Virginia school reopening guidelines.
