We are looking for a diverse group of students to join a professional staff of artists and educators and share their collective stories. In doing so, one, solid, unified piece of theatre with music is born. In order to make this happen, we need creative people of all types. This experience is about the creative process, and while the performance is an enormous part of our workshop, the focus is on the days of creation. We need writers, actors, poets, dreamers, singers, visual artists, composers, musicians, designers and creative people of all types.

ONLINE Northwest Kansas Teen Lovewell Workshops (underwritten by the Dane G. Hansen Foundation)

  • Dates, locations and information and applications coming in late ’21.

Students will join a professional staff to brainstorm, write, design, compose, choreograph and produce an original work of musical theatre – all in one week. What will the show be about? It’s up to the group! Lovewell workshops are a singular experience, unlike any other you’ve been a part of in the past; ideal for writers, builders, actors, musicians, designers, singers, composers, and imaginative young people of all types who want to dream big, work hard and experience the thrill of watching their collaborative creation come to life.


You’ll get to build on the skills you already have and flex your creative muscles by learning some new ones – at Lovewell, everybody gets to do a little bit of everything. Whether you’re a seasoned musical theatre vet seeking a new adventure or this your first step towards the stage, come spend your summer with other creative young folks just like you in a warmly inviting, wildly inspiring, and totally accepting environment. No matter who you are – you belong at Lovewell.


All applicants must fill out the application in its entirety and pay the $50 application/tuition fee (or apply for a scholarship). Your paperwork will not be processed and you will not have a secured slot in your chosen workshop until your application is complete.



$50 total= application fee and tuition per student per workshop.



When you apply you will be directed to pay the $50 application/tuition via Paypal at the time of submission and our system will guide you there when your application is complete.

Please note that we only accept payment for the workshop via Paypal to the address info@lovewell.org and you do NOT have to have a Paypal account in order to use this system.



There are no refunds for our Kansas workshops (unless the workshop is cancelled). Once the fee has been paid, it cannot be refunded.



The COVID-19 pandemic is a constantly-evolving situation. Lovewell is committed to the health and safety of our workshop participants and staff and will follow the most updated guidance provided by the CDC and the local authorities. If public health needs determine that it’s necessary to shift our in-person workshops to online, participants will be notified in a timely manner. At that time, you will have the option to attend an online workshop.
