Theatre

Woodlawn Arts Academy’s student theatre programs are open to all, and every student who registers gets a part! Participants get the opportunity to act, sing and dance, plus learn auditioning tips, and about costuming and set design. Rehearsals for our 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, thanks to our Sauk Valley Theatre Alliance partnership with SVCC and Centennial Auditorium.

Additionally, we offer outreach theatre programs with Dixon Public Schools, as well as Rock Falls Middle School through the 21st Century Community Learning Centers grant with the Sterling-Rock Falls Y.
