Performing Arts

Made for the Stage

Made for the Stage incorporates all aspects of theatre training including acting, drama techniques, skill development, monologue and audition preparation, along with technical skills such as lighting and sound design. If being part of the technical crew interests you more than being in front of the audience, there is still a place for you at BCLT! Each session will conclude with a performance open to friends and family.

Act 1: (suggested ages 7-10)

This class will introduce younger actors to the world of theatre. They’ll build confidence and find their stage presence through fun exercises and guided activities such as developing their own characters for their play.
