Academy at Civic Theatre (A.C.T.)

Academy at Civic Theatre (A.C.T.) offers arts education programs for ages 4 and up. There are classes in improvisation, comedy, character development, dance, and acting. Classes are held after school, on weekends, and over the summer. Students who are flexing their creative muscles in the present also are developing into a population of citizens with a heightened sense of cultural literacy. These same students will be future participants in the theatre, patrons, donors, volunteers, and ambassadors for the arts.

A.C.T. Cancellation Policy

Classes may be combined due to enrollment numbers.

If WCT cancels a class for any reason, students enrolled will receive a full refund or credit for future class.

Students cancelling registration will be charged a 10% administration fee (minimum $10 per class) on refunds for cancellations up through the first day of class. Instead of a refund, students can also choose to transfer their full tuition to a different A.C.T. class.

If students cancel after the second session or later, a refund will be pro-rated accordingly.
