The School

At the Edge of the Wood theatre school young people, ages 4-18, have been trained in acting, improv, speech, movement, and musical theatre – for over 20 years. 

Everyone gets into the act at Edge of the Wood

Our inclusive philosophy means every student gets to perform in front of an audience, building discipline, self-confidence, and teamwork skills along the way.

Fall session is underway! Registration for spring begins in mid-December.

The Resident Theatre

The Resident Theatre produces family-friendly shows across genres, featuring new and veteran Chicago theatre artists, often alongside our students.
