Welcome to WYART!!!
Theater is one of the most disciplined art forms and, for us at Weathervane Playhouse, it is a calling, a developed craft, a debate platform, a profession, and a way of life. Along with the nervousness, excitement, fun, and passion that accompany being on stage, the Weathervane Young Artists’ Repertory Theatre (WYART) is dedicated to providing young artists with a theatre education that will help them excel in the ever-changing performing arts profession.
At WYART we offer a variety of performing arts classes and workshops, lead by professional artists and teachers, that emphasize technique, discipline, spontaneity, and theatrical skill. The heart of the WYART programs is the process, not just the product. While many of our workshops culminate in performances or demonstrations, the focus during the programs is on the artistic and personal development of the individual student.
Through disciplined, creativity-based theatre training, students develop skills in public speaking, critical thinking, self-confidence, and collaboration with others. We believe these skills prepare young theatre artists to take a place of responsibility in the community at large, not only as artists, but as great leaders, neighbors and overall citizens.
