Waco Children's Theatre

Serving Waco and the surrounding central Texas area, our mission is to help young people develop confidence, self-awareness and character through the performing arts.



Dear Waco Children's Theatre Families,


This summer will mark our 30th annual children’s camp, beginning on June 3 and running throughout the month.  As usual we will be teaching classes in music, movement, art, and acting, and we will perform two musicals, ANNIE and FROZEN. Most of our known teachers are returning, and there will be some new folks to get to know.  It’s going to be a ton of fun and tons of work!

Registration days will be held the next two Sundays, April 7 and 14th from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. at the Lee Lockwood Library and Museum.  A copy of the registration form is attached. A lot of you have already registered, and  many of you have requested the paperwork but have not returned it to us.  We need to know if you are planning to come so we can set up auditions, so please come to one of these sessions so we can get organized.  If you are unable to make it to one of these days, please either email (to info@wacochildrenstheatre.org), drop off, or mail your registration paperwork to me at 2000 Lenamon, Waco, 76710. If you are working in the camp we would love for you to come to one of these days as well.  If you are not sure if you are working in the camp, please call me at 254-776-0707.

P.S.  We will soon be holding auditions for the world premiere performance of “Tom and Huck”.  This is a full length play that has been finished by Joshua Hill.  I requested that he do this adaptation of the Adventures of Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn especially for the Waco Children’s Theater.  Josh Hill grew up in Waco and has a Bachelor’s degree from the University of Texas in Austin and a Master’s of Fine Arts from Columbia University in New York .  Both of these degrees are in playwriting.  He also has a Master’s degree in Education from City College in New York.


In addition, we are also planning auditions for our Halloween show and our holiday shows.  We will talk more about this later. 


See you soon,
