A.C.T. at BCT

A.C.T. at BCT

The Academy for Contemporary Theater is BCT’s newest offering.  Of course, we still have our gold standard Theater Lab programs, but we wanted to add more opportunities to bring the community into our home. Like adult acting classes. And playwriting classes. And even some classes for our younger artists. Come A.C.T. at BCT!

Masks are optional for all classes. Cancellations are subject to a $50 cancellation fee.

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 a story to tell and that it’s important to listen. 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.

Students will create brand new plays from scratch and then perform them on our professional stage with all the bells and whistles in this ten-week class.

(Audition required, limited space available. To schedule an audition, please email [email protected])

“I use to think Theater Lab was about writing, performing, and having fun in the process. No, that’s what you do, part of what you do, but not what Theater Lab is about. Theater Lab is about growing as a person. Learning to think in new ways, experience new things, be with new people.” ~Theater Lab Student

“When I started Theater Lab, I was barely able to talk to my classmates, let alone on stage in front of hundreds of people. Theater Lab forced me to speak my mind, and have confidence in my actions. This program has changed my life and made me into the person I am today.” ~Theater Lab Student

It’s a book club. For plays. Because who has time to read a whole book? This monthly play-reading class led by BCT Associate Artist Tracy Sunderland. Students will develop text analysis skills to help analyze the plays, consider context and socio-cultural movements during the period as they discuss how these plays reflect lived experiences and connect to their own lives. We’ll send you a play the week before class, you just have to read it before we meet.
