West Chester Studio for the Performing Arts is a community-wide acting and musical theater school. Our teachers are experienced professional actors and provide a high-caliber performing arts education to students of all ages and abilities from Chester County, Delaware County, Wilmington and Philadelphia.
Students gain confidence and are encouraged to take risks in a fun, nurturing and safe environment.

Our 2013 Spring Show was a huge success!
Children and parents enjoyed our adorable Elementary Production of FURRY TALES! Not only did our audiences see a cute unknown story but they were delighted and entertained by WCS's amazing young actors!
Our Middle and High School students performed "Middle Class" & "Second Class" to rave reviews by all. These entertaining one acts not only highlighted the strength of each and every actor but gave the audience something to think about concerning what our teens deal with every day at school.
If you missed our Summer Camps, don't worry we offer a variety of classes in the Fall, Winter and Spring. Plus, in the Spring we offer our most intense theatrical learning opportunity: Our Spring Show. The Spring Show gives every performer the opportunity to take the lead as well as work and perform in a professional setting with professional directors, lighting designer, set designer and costume designer. The Spring Show is eight weeks of two to three rehearsals a week and may not be for everyone because of the time commitment, but if your child is interested in the performing arts they will not want to pass this up!
