Theatre

Woodlawn Arts Academy presents several theatre productions each year. Our student theatre programs are open to all, and every student who registers gets a part! We strive to educate our participants in all aspects of theatre, including character development, props, costuming and much more! Rehearsals for our fall and spring musicals take place in the J. Mark Beaty Performance Center at Woodlawn Arts Academy until the last few weeks of rehearsals, when they move to Sauk Valley Community College’s Jerry Mathis Theatre.

In 2012, we partnered with with Sauk Valley Community College and Sterling High School’s Centennial Auditorium to form the Sauk Valley Theatre Alliance, which annually puts on a Theatre in the Park production on the outdoor stage behind the Academy.
