Glad you got to see the show!
There’s nothing like the experience of theatre. Laughing at the jokes, seeing how actors take on different characters, and being transported by the action that’s taking place just a few feet away.

Feb 13-17 – Young Playwrights Festival
by Walden Theatre Conservatory Playwrights
produced by Melinda Crecelius & Keith McGill
A showcase of outstanding young writers, directors, and actors.
From teachers under fire to cults, gods, monsters, and sisters, the 2018 Young Playwrights Festival promises surprises, hilarity, and moving moments with six plays by five student writers. The writers are Jacob Craigo-Snell, Delaney Hildreth, Connor Madison, Zoë Peterson, and Sara Seim. And with students (and an alum) directing these short plays, audiences can expect plenty of bold creative choices for these premieres.
Mar 1-10 – Circe and Ulysses
by Darcy Cleaver
directed by Mitchell Martin
The sorceress Circe has made a sport of reeling in seafarers and keeping them for her pets. But with the arrival of Ulysses—the hero of Homer’s Odyssey (and catch of the century?)—she finds herself ensnared by forces beyond her power in this world premiere play about love, fate, and fun in the sun written by a Louisville playwright.
Take the stage yourself!
Whether you’re a beginner or have a ton of roles behind you, the Conservatory is a way to get world-class pre-professional theatre training right here in Louisville! And with a full range of Summer Camps, including several for Pre-K to 13 years old that venture to the world of the Wizard of Oz, there’s no need to wait until September to enroll.
- ages 5-18, beginners to pre-professional
- all levels of experience
- No audition is required
Graduates are sought-after by the top undergrad and graduate theatre programs in the nation (and abroad), and alumni go on work at Broadway, Hollywood, and everything between in a wide range of disciplines. Actors, opera sopranos, arts administrators, theatre lighting/costume/set designers, filmmakers, stage managers, lawyers, doctors, and business leaders all develop their skills here.
Classes meet after school every Fall and Spring semester.
