Give Your Child the Gift of Theatre | Libertyville Area Moms

Theatre Education, and education in the arts, is crucial to the professional and social development of every child, and Citadel Theatre is where you can find a top-notch theatre education program! What’s exciting about Citadel’s education program is that we are not only teaching the fundamentals of being on stage, we are encouraging and providing a safe space for the development of lifelong skills such as creative thinking, cooperation and self-awareness, just to name a few. These skills are necessary for the stage, as well as essential to thrive in any professional environment.

There is so much more to theatre than the stage. Every session we are able to witness first-hand the benefits of a child taking an acting/theatre class. Citadel’s classes provide a play-based learning experience with the belief that the process and product are of equal importance.

Here are our 5 reasons why every child should explore, create and discover their artist within.


  1. Communication – Learn to communicate effectively with others of all backgrounds.

  2. Confidence – Explore and become confident with your voice, body, and ideas.

  3. Balance – Relieve stress and tension through creative expression.

  4. Vulnerability – Understand its ok to be vulnerable, ask for help and problem solve as an individual, in addition to a team member.

  5. Friends – Make new friends in a positive, dynamic and fun environment.

The 2020 Citadel Theatre Summer Camp is thrilled to offering a new addition to the curriculum: The Business of Theatre. This addition will include professional headshots for each student, as well as help with professional bios and resumes. All of this can be translated to the broader professional world, and gives students the confidence to be able to build these necessary parts to their professional development.


At Citadel Theatre, we believe that theater can change the world. Even if our students do not pursue a career in the performing arts, we are happy to send them into the world at large with the confidence, compassion, and team work skills they learn through our programs.
