All children ages 6-18 (by the last day of class) may register for a class in their age group.

Academy Classes

NEW Academy Classes for the 2022-2023 Season - Auditions for Academy Classes are now closed. Students interested in taking a CWorks class can register online on July 31, 2022. 
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."
