Dear Parents, Members, and Patrons of WDI Summer Children’s Workshop, 

It is with deep regret that the Wheaton Drama Summer Workshop Leadership team has made the decision to cancel the 2020 WDI Children’s Summer Workshop. There are just too many unknowns, and we did not feel that we could guarantee the safety and well-being of our students during these uncertain times.

Please know, the Education Team is hard at work already for the 2021 WDI Children’s Summer Workshop and have some great ideas on how to improve our program for all participants.

When it is deemed safe once again, Wheaton Drama will reopen its doors, and with that we will offer our usual set of After School classes. These classes themselves are in the process of being revamped to appeal to more children. We hope that you will consider joining us for these classes when the opportunity arises. In addition, we hope to see you for the Summer of 2021 for our new and improved WDI Children’s Summer Workshop. We will share more details about our new summer workshop program soon.

In the meantime if you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to reach out. Together we will get through this.

WDI Children’s Summer Workshop

Do you know a child who enjoys theatre and wants to learn more about performance or technical skills? Wheaton Drama workshops will help build confidence by giving the attendees first hand experience in creating a live production. Your child will learn how teamwork works in building a theatrical presentation…besides having fun and making new friends. The place to be this summer is Wheaton Drama’s Playhouse 111.

Registration will be available online in early April, 2021.
