Woodlawn Arts Academy presents several theatre productions each year, including three musicals featuring students in second through eighth grades. 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. 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.
Tickets for our student productions are $6 each (cash or check only) and go on sale to the public approximately three weeks prior to the performance. All seating is general admission. Watch social media if you’re waiting to purchase tickets at the door because we often sell out early!

It’s the first day after winter break at East High. The Jocks, Brainiacs, Thespians and Skater Dudes all find their cliques. Basketball team captain and resident jock, Troy, discovers that the brainy Gabriella, a girl he met singing karaoke on his ski trip, has just enrolled at East High. The couple cause an upheaval when they decide to audition for the high school musical. Although many students resent the threat posed to the “status quo,” Troy and Gabriella’s alliance might just open the door for others to shine as well.

Sue has her bags packed, her farewell note written and the resolution to leave her husband, Dan, after decades of their lives entwined. Finding herself in their dusty, suburban attic for a final goodbye to the life they led, Sue is startled when Dan arrives home early from his all-consuming job. Surrounded by a lifetime of memories and phantoms of their former selves, Sue and Dan embark on a cerebral journey to the past, rediscovering their true love that remained hidden in a lifetime of Snapshots.
