Admittance to student productions consists of an audition process and tuition fee of $400 ($375 when paid in full). Rehearsals vary upon production but typically are held once a week for ten weeks. The rehearsal process ends with a full-fledged production complete with all the theatrics you would expect from a Broadway show.

The Woodlawn Academy for the Performing Arts Premier consists of an elite group of students, ages 7 - 19, who excel in their technique, attitude, talent, and character, and chosen by the Academy faculty to form a performance company. Casting for Premier is by audition or invitation only. Students in Premier rehearse weekly and develop a repertoire for performances to ensure the group puts their best foot forward in representing Woodlawn Theatre.  

Woodlawn Theatre receives many requests for community performances that Premier is invited to. Dates are given as the performances are scheduled and become available. Upcoming performances include:  

  • Holiday community performances, dates/times TBD

  • Feature at Woodlawn After Dark in 2019 season

All Premier students are required to register for the Leg Up Premier class that meets Tuesday or Thursday nights, 7:30 - 8:30 pm and at least one additional Leg Up class. It is highly recommended that students enroll in vocal music, stage acting, and musical theatre dance in addition to Premier to maintain a high-performance quality but only require one of the three. There is a fee associated with enrollment in Leg Up based on the number of classes taken, however, there will be no choreography, music, costume, copyright or performance fees assessed throughout the year. Your monthly tuition will cover these costs.  As this class is by invitation only, you cannot register for it online.
