Windy City Music Theatre is a professional theatre and performing arts school. The company provides classes, camps and shows for all-ages in its Jefferson Park studios, and in schools around Chicagoland.
Founded as Youth Company Chicago in 2012, WCMT has grown to a bustling program that serves over 800 students in education programs, and performs for thousands and thousands of audience members. More than just another theatre company, WCMT has become an artistic home where teachers, students, parents and community members learn, create, perform, and inspire each other.
In 2015, we renovated and opened the new Jefferson Playhouse, a 70-seat venue that allows us to showcase our students and professionals in a beautiful, intimate blackbox-style theatre.
We offer rich music theatre education and performance experiences for the families of Chicagoland through our four program divisions: MAINSTAGE, YOUTHSTAGE, TEENSTAGE, and KIDSTAGE. Our Schoolsite programs and Kindermusik classes add additional learning opportunities for even more families.
