At BCT, we believe you’ve got a story to tell. And, we want to help you tell it. Join small crews of like-minded young artists as we team up to create brand new work the world has never seen before.

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

BCT offers fun, professional theater training programs for youth ages 6 to 18. Our teachers are working professionals (many of whom you see regularly on the BCT Mainstage and in our reading series) and bring unique perspectives on everything from auditioning to playwriting to acting with a focus on special discipline techniques, including Viewpoints and Suzuki training. Start off on the right foot, and develop a contemporary theater foundation that will serve you a lifetime. It’s fun, challenging, supportive and extremely rewarding work. And, we have a place just for you.
