The Wichita Theatre Performing Arts Academy is the premiere Arts Education program of North Texas. Besides exceptional training in various aspects of the arts, our workshops help promote confidence, self- esteem and leadership skills. Each workshop is designed to teach numerous facets of the performing arts. Whether interviewing for a job, auditioning for a show or just doing a report in front of your class at school, performing is a part of life. Our reputable instructors will help you improve, enrich and compliment your upcoming performance. From acting to auditioning or movement and speech, our Performing Arts Academy offers second to none instruction. The Wichita Theatre provides a safe, healthy environment for you to learn and grow. We use age appropriate material to educate and develop our students.



Our audition workshops are designed to equip students with the necessary tools for a successful audition. Our three-session workshops will include:

Session 1
Producers, directors, and performers share knowledge about the audition process. Parents are requested to attend the first session. This is a great time for them to learn about what we do and to get any questions answered.

Session 2
Instructors coach students through different audition sides.

Session 3
The final day will include a showcase for students and parents. This is to demonstrate what our students have learned. After the presentation, our instructors will sit down and individually evaluate the students progress. At this time our instructors will answer any questions our students or parents may have.


Our Acting 101 workshops are designed to teach students emotional connection and character development and direction. We also focus on articulation, breathing, and posture. This will also be a three-session workshop.

We require all new students to attend the Audition Workshop before graduating to our advanced programs. Once the student is familiar with these principles, he or she will have a better foundation to progress to the next level. If a student has performed in any Wichita Theatre production, he or she may be eligible for a director’s approval. In this case the student would be required to enroll in the Audition Workshop.


This workshop is for select students, and the dates will be determined as needed.
