THEATER LAB (ages 12-18)





Want to write? Act? Play? Then this is the place for you.

Welcome to BCT Theater Lab! We believe you’ve got a story to tell, and we’d like to help you tell it. Join a small crew of like-minded young artists as we team up to create a brand new play the world has never seen before.

Our 10-week Theater Lab intensives in the Fall and Spring are designed to take young artists deep into the art and craft of storytelling. Small teams create a brand new play, working side-by-side with professional actors, writers and designers, and present their new works for the public on the Mainstage. Ages 12-18. Audition required.


Introducing . . .


This year we’re going to expand our educational outreach to Boise’s youth. We’re getting YOUTHIER. That’s right… Theater Lab for 8-11 year olds! Our brand new program for younger playmakers begins this fall with classes that will run on Tuesday and Thursday concurrently with our existing Theater Lab. Each five week session will culminate in a performance for family and friends in the BCT Loft. No audition required.


For your audition:
– Please prepare a 1-minute monologue of your choosing.
– Bring a headshot (any photo of your face will work) and resume of your acting training/work to the audition.
– Bring a short sample of your writing to your audition.

You must complete the online registration prior to your audition. Please click HERE and complete and submit the required student and parent/guardian sections.
