2018 Summer Programs

Theatre is life in its most concentrated and compelling form. Training as a theater artist shapes students into creative, empowered and passionate members of society. They learn skills they will use for the rest of their lives, including collaboration, respect, confidence and creativity. With Musical Theatre development for all ages, intensive experiences for advanced students, including the creation of a full production, this summer at ArtsWest is going to be full of exploration and full of fun!
