Compass Creative Dramatics

Students stretch their creativity and bravery muscles through rehearsals and workshops in topics like improvisation and stage combat taught by Chicago theatre professionals. Students perf om alongside two professional actors/educators, who lead by example, helping children shine through the experience of live performance. Compass Creative Dramatics holds workshops and classes throughout the year at the Jack Benny Center for the Arts and at the Visual Arts Center. Feel free to contact the Jack Benny Center or watch the Park District’s Recreation Connection for classes. We encourage students to take creative risks and trust without self-judgement, stretching their creativity and bravery “muscles” as they develop social skills like teamwork, respect and empathy through their exploration of theatre.
