The following Education programming at ArtsWest is on hold during the pandemic shuttering of our in-person work. We look forward to bringing it back in late Fall 2021!


Have you ever wondered how a Scenic Designer plans a stage? What cast members do to prepare for their roles? How the whole thing – costumes, casting, lighting, and more – all come together to make a production at ArtsWest? FIRST LOOK events are your (free!) opportunity to engage directly with the creative minds behind each ArtsWest production.

Join ArtsWest and go behind the scenes –  each week, once a week over 4 weeks,  you  will dive deeper into our production process. You’ll learn everything from how directors develop a concept to marketing strategies as opening night draws near. Take part in a brand-new journey into the fast-paced, creative world of theater-making!
