Raue Center School For The Arts – Youth Classes

Youth Classes

Raue Center School For The Arts offers the ultimate learning experience for anyone interested in the world of theatre. All classes are led by working professional actors, directors, and designers (including those from Raue Center’s award-winning in-house professional theatre company, Williams Street Repertory) who offer advice and insight into the fast-paced and ever-changing professional theatre landscape, giving students a chance to make important connections and learn from the best.

We offer a wide variety of classes in acting, musical theatre, and theatre production, so there’s truly something for every student to explore their passion and build their skills.

Our students have gone on to pursue their careers at top colleges and universities, and appear in productions across Chicagoland—including right here with Williams Street Repertory!
