Student Production Workshop

What is Student Production Workshop?

Roundabout Theatre Company’s after school program, Student Production Workshop (SPW), is a student led theatre company modeled after Roundabout’s professional theatre production process.


Come audition and interview for Student Production Workshop’s play Little by Little. Actors will explore their characters during our rehearsal process and perform on our stage. If acting isn’t your thing, come and join the ensemble as a designer. Designers will have the opportunity to create sets, costumes, lights, and sound for this entirely student-run production. All actors and designers receive a stipend at the end of the summer.

Watch this behind-the-scenes video created this year by student Erika Juarez, mentored by teaching artist Leah Reddy.
