You’ve got one of THOSE kids. You know…
Maybe even… (gulp)… an ARTIST.

Don’t panic. Send them to Theater Lab.
We WERE those kids. And we tell GREAT stories.


THEATER LAB: MAINSTAGE     register_now_button

BCT Theater Lab, for youth 12-18 years old, is dedicated to the proposition that students are capable of more than we expect. That they have something to say and that it’s important to listen. We believe that theater makes us all better listeners, communicators, collaborators, and leaders. It teaches the language of empathy. Students make brand new plays from scratch and perform them on the BCT mainstage. It’s unlike anything else in the valley, and it’s a whole lot of fun.

Required auditions for the Fall Theater Lab Sessions will be held on August 26. Complete online registration and prepare a one-minute monologue.

Fall Session:

Mondays and Wednesdays, 4pm – 7 pm, September 10 – November 17, $450

Spring Session:

Mondays and Wednesdays, 4pm – 7 pm, February 25 – May 11, $450
