Metal Shop Theater

Find the Metal Shop on Facebook for links to so many great original productions!

Willard’s Metal Shop Theater—a 90-seat black box theater created from the ruins of Willard’s old Metal Shop—is home to Willard Middle School’s Metal Shop Players. This amazing drama program specializes in creating original plays and musicals written and directed by our own middle school students. The program is funded through BUSD’s Berkeley Schools Excellence Program (BSEP) and meets Mondays and Thursdays after school in the Metal Shop Theater, located in Willard’s D Building (at the end of Regent St., just north of Stuart).

The program is free, and students are not required to be enrolled in Willard’s after school program in order to participate.
