Upcoming Theatre Arts Education Opportunities

The Show:

Wizard of Oz

The Dates:

September 26-October 1


Go from auditions to performance in just five days with Compass Creative Dramatics, a Chicago-based touring theatre who will be hosting a week-long theatre residency at the Howmet Playhouse sponsored by the Arts Council of White Lake.

Students in grades 1st through 6th will stretch their creativity and bravery muscles through daily rehearsals for The Wizard of Oz. Students also perform alongside two professional actors during the week!

No acting experience necessary—just come ready to be silly and have fun!


Auditions will be on September 26 from 4:15-7:30 pm at the Howmet Playhouse.
