Porchlight is proud to be Chicago's home for music theatre and believes in the power of studying theatre to build self-confidence, creative thinking and open us all up to be more empathetic and caring humans. Our youth classes are designed to build sequentially, with our youngest actors learning basics, up to our most advanced young artists creating full productions. Your young artist is welcome to join us at any stage!
Get on stage with Porchlight Music Theatre’s jam packed classes and summer camps! Campers will spend time acting, singing and dancing while they make new friends and learn about theatre fundamentals. Families and friends are welcome to join us for a final performance and celebration of all your young actor’s hard work!
Students aged 7-17 years can join us in-person or virtually via zoom. Scholarships and financial aid are available, and we look forward to seeing you there!
