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, technical skills such as lighting and sound design, makeup artistry and costume and prop/set 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! Sound designers will develop the music and sound effects; lighting designers will develop the “look”, makeup artists will prepare the actors, costume designers will develop the character’s look and prop/set design will develop the stage for the story.

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. Each actor will receive a part in a play written especially for them! Final performance is Tuesday Dec. 18 at 7 p.m. (Fees do not include GST).

*No experience required!

Act 2: (suggested ages 11-16)

This class will encourage and challenge developing young actors. Actors will have mock auditions wherein they’ll receive feedback to develop their skills. They’ll get a part in a play written or picked especially for them. Interested in the technical side of theatre? Makeup, costume or prop design? Stage management or even directing? This is a safe program to learn more and develop these skills in a practical way. Due to its nature, we can only take on one “assistant director” and one “stage manager” per semester and will take serious requests at a first come, first served basis. Final performance is on Dec. 18 at 7 p.m. (Fees do not include GST).
