Porchlight Music Theatre is proud to be Chicago’s home for music theatre and believes in the power of theater to build self-confidence, creative thinking, and open us all up to be more empathetic and caring humans. Our students spend twelve jam packed weeks learning songs, dances, creating characters, and putting together a final show for family and friends.
Our youth classes are designed to build sequentially, with our youngest actors (Broadway Basics, ages 7-10) learning fundamentals, our intermediate students building in skill and difficulty (Musical Theatre Bootcamp, ages 11-13), and our most advanced young artists (Advanced Musical Theatre Performance, ages 14-17) creating a more full production focused on individual student goals.
This fall, our in-person classes will be limited to 10 students with virtual options available. Our in-person students will wear masks when inside and practice social distancing. Our final performances on the last day will be virtual as well for family near and far! Scholarships and financial aid is available!
