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!

THEATER LAB: MAINSTAGE

Fall Session:

Sept 1 – Nov 13, 2021
Monday & Wednesday
4 pm – 6:30 pm

Spring Session:

Feb 28 – May 14, 2022
Monday & Wednesday
4 pm – 6:30 pm

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. 

This fall, students will create brand new (screen) plays from scratch and then film them to be shown and released to the public. Our best efforts for health and safety are addressed through small groups, sessions half in class and half online, and sanitations measures.

(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

Each five week session will culminate in a performance for family and friends in the BCT Loft.

“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

PLAYWRITING

Have you always wanted to try those playwriting skills solo? Here’s your chance! This class offers insight and guidance from talented writers and professional theater makers that will help bring your words to life.

NEXT STAGE:
PROFESSIONAL & ADULT ACTING CLASSES

Now A.C.T at BCT is including all the kids at heart! You asked and we listened. That’s right, adult acting classes!

These eight-week courses are designed to propel you further in your acting career, taught by one of the most talented local actors, Jessica Ires Morris.

SCENE STUDY FOR THE PROFESSIONAL ACTOR

Spring Session: 

Jan 10 – Feb 28, 2022
Monday
7 – 9 pm

This class focuses on student or working actors, college level and above. These are performers who have taken other acting courses and performed in plays, and who hope to work/are working with some frequency in the field – although not necessarily solely as performers. You should already have the ability to perform basic text analysis and be familiar with the idea of scene “beats”, objectives, obstacles, and with making strong and committed choices for your character.

$200

EXPLORATION OF ACTING

Fall Session:

Oct 18 – Dec 13, 2021
Monday
7 – 9 pm

For students of all abilities. This acting class explores the fundamentals of working with a contemporary script – text analysis, character development, physical presence, vocal and speech coaching and preparing for performance. If you are interested in getting back into performance, staying in shape artistically, or trying your hand at live performance, this is a great class for you. No audition required.

Play On! Play Reading Club

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.

If you wish to take only a single class, please find the Play On! date and sign up there.

Check back for our next Play On! Reading series in early 2022!

$100

Individual classes
$30
