Producing quality programming for children has been a part of the Woodstock Fine Arts Association from the beginning - even before 1961. Directing summer theater programs for interested high school and college students developed into the goal of rescuing the Opera House. Programming for young people, and restoring the Opera House became the foundation of the formation of the WFAA.
Today the Children's Programming Committee works in partnership with McHenry County schools. The mission is to provide school children an opportunity to see quality programming in the historic Opera House. During the last ten years more than 29,600 school children have attended WFAA Children's programming events.
