The Theatre Arts Education Program

WLYT LogoThe White Lake Youth Theatre Program of the Howmet Playhouse, in partnership with the Nuveen Community Center for the Arts, offers various opportunities throughout the year for students to learn different aspects of theater in their own backyard.


The Theatre Arts Program offers two types of workshops:

Theatre Workshops

Workshops are offered for students of all ages to help new and experienced performers and technicians hone their skills both on and off stage. Class fees for the theatre workshops will vary according to the number of class hours.

Performance Workshops

Students can audition for roles in our summer performance workshop in late May for a large-scale performance during our Summer Theatre Festival. Workshop fees will be calculated based upon length of the workshop and will be a flat fee.


  • All workshops are taught by experienced theater professionals and are a mix of theory and practical application.
  • Class fee information and registration deadlines will always be listed with other details of the workshop opportunity.
  • We are expanding this program every year, thanks to the energy and dedication of our students, parents, and staff.

Please visit this page regularly for updates on upcoming events.
