About the Teen Ensemble

WFT’s Teen Performance Ensemble is an opportunity for teen actors 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.

Upcoming Productions

From the Tony® and Grammy® award-winning creators of Spring Awakening, Steven Sater and Duncan Sheik, and co-written by Jessie Nelson (Waitress), Alice by Heart is a touching musical inspired by Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.

In the rubble of the London Blitz of World War II, Alice Spencer’s budding teen life is turned upside down, and she and her dear friend Alfred are forced to take shelter in an underground tube station. When the ailing Alfred is quarantined, Alice encourages him to escape with her into their cherished book and journey down the rabbit hole to Wonderland.

As they travel through the tale, Alice by Heart explores the poignancy of first love, coming to terms with loss, and finding the courage to move forward. This world premiere musical encourages us all to celebrate the transformational power of the imagination, even in the harshest of times.
