WCT Kids is an educational program open to anybody aged 8-12 who wants to learn and experience theatre, no auditions are required! Professional workshops will build or enhance foundational knowledge in theatre.
Registration for our Fall 2023 Session of WCT Kids will be available below on August 28, 2023 at 6pm.
Participation in WCT Kids (or WCT Teens) does not guarantee a role in Whitby Courthouse Theatre's Young Performers Production in June, but will help build participants' audition skills, for any show they may wish to audition for.
WCT Kids is open to anybody born from 2011 to 2015 who want to develop a well-rounded foundational knowledge of theatre from professionals.
Whitby Courthouse Theatre is dedicated to keeping theatre accessible, and program fees are kept low. The program fee is $300.
Financial Aid is available, more information can be found here.
Those wishing to access Financial Aid should do so as soon as possible so a spot can be reserved while the application is completed.
We want all kids to have the opportunity to learn, without barriers, so there is no audition to join WCT Kids. There are also no formal experience requirements.
All participants are expected to be well-mannered, eager to learn, and respectful of others in accordance with our Code of Conduct.
