Walden Theatre encourages all students and parents (new or continuing) in the intermediate and advanced classes to attend an informal open house ahead of the fall term. We’re providing pizza for everyone, and wonderful volunteers are contributing snacks, drinks, and desserts to enjoy.

STUDIO, APPRENTICE CLASSES:

We’re taking this opportunity to share general information about our nationally-recognized theatre Conservatory programs, give parents and students a chance to meet talented faculty and directors, review opportunities for students, and offer a window into what makes Walden Theatre tick. Along the way, we’ll also be talking about some changes that expand our offerings for students and allow us to continue to grow to accommodate everyone who wants to get involved.
So bring your family, bring interested friends and neighbors, and take this chance to meet us. We’re looking forward to answering your questions and sharing all the great initiatives underway to further build on our tradition of building character and staging success for our amazing young people. And any student who brings a prospective student (and parent) gets 5 hard-core points!
If you have questions about the Open House, class placement for fall, or anything else Conservatory, call and speak with Charlie or Julane.

The run of the show is 9/18-9/27. The run crew would need to be available for rehearsals starting the week of 9/8.
If you are interested in participating, please contact Hallie at:

Walden Theatre remounts the William Shakespeare romance Pericles, Prince of Tyre as part of Kentucky Shakespeare’s Community Partners portion of their annual Festival in Old Louisville’s Central Park.
Here’s a bit about the play:
A Greek prince fleeing an evil king sails the seas in this tale of triumphant rescues, beautiful maidens, and great personal tragedy. Will determination, wit, and divine intervention see the prince’s family restored to him?
The play is on the C. Douglas Ramey Stage at Central Park August 6, 8, and 10. Pre-show fun and entertainment begins at 7:15, and Pericles begins at 8:00pm. All shows are free, but donations are encouraged and drinks are available.
See you at the park!
This summer, Walden Theatre collaborated with Louisville Visual Art Association and Kentucky Shakespeare to provide students at three Metro Parks community centers with an engaging, interdisciplinary program that helped young people find their voices.
During the seven-week Our Louisville program, students from Parkhill, Shelby, and Southwick Community Centers worked with theatre artists to create original plays that explore their perspectives on the community in which they live—along the way envisioning how that community could change for the better.
The residency involved 16 sessions, with students ages 5-13 participating in drama, movement, and visual arts. Our Louisville culminates in a free performance:
C. Douglas Ramey Amphitheater
August 7 at 7:15pm
(ahead of the Kentucky Shakespeare Community Partners performance of
As You Like It by Le Petomane Theatre Ensemble)
In addition to theatre instruction, visual artists worked with participants to create a piece of art that serves as a backdrop for the final performance. In Central Park, participants from all three community centers will perform—sharing a varied youth perspective on our city and reminding grown-ups and kids alike that positive change IS possible.
Here they are. Spread the word.
