At the Wolf Theatre Academy, we set the HIGHEST STANDARDS for our faculty and students. Our students work with THEATRICAL PROFESSIONALS who are experienced in the art of theatre EDUCATION. At the younger ages, we emphasize a POSITIVE, nurturing style of teaching with students growing through ENCOURAGEMENT in an environment that supports their development as individuals and as artists. Although our teaching focus shifts for older groups to QUALITY PERFORMANCE, we are proud that most students complete our programs with a sense of incredible accomplishment for a job well done.
Fall 2016 Classes
Urinetown – Pluss Theatre
“A side-splitting send-up of greed, love, revolution (and musicals!), in a time when water is worth its weight in gold.” – Music Theatre International
In a Gotham-like city, a terrible water shortage causes a government-enforced ban on private toilets. The citizens must use public amenities, regulated by a single company that profits by charging admission for one of humanity’s most basic needs. Amid the people, a hero decides he’s had enough, and plans a revolution to lead them all to freedom!
