Theatre Productions


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!
