Teen Ensemble: Alice By Heart

WFT’s Teen Performance Ensemble is an opportunity for teen actors, in grades 8 through 12, to deepen their skills as theatrical storytellers. As a member of the Ensemble, actors work in a highly collaborative and creative rehearsal process to bring the world of a play to life. In this program, Teen actors have the opportunity to work with professional directors, choreographers, and music directors in a fully realized production on WFT’s mainstage. The focus throughout is on individual and collective growth within a supportive artistic community.
