Porchlight is proud to be Chicago’s home for music theatre and believes in the power of studying theater to build self-confidence, creative thinking, and open us all up to be more empathetic and caring humans. Our youth classes are designed to build sequentially, with our youngest actors learning basics, up to our most advanced young artists creating a full production, but your young artist is welcome to join us at any stage!
