Registration starts for fall programs at BPA Theatre School

Registration for BPA Theatre School’s Fall 2014 session is now underway.

Fall offerings for developing actors include Creative Drama-Space Adventures, Imagination Station and Story Drama. These classes emphasize enhanced creativity, social skills, and brain development for students ages 3-5 and grades K-2.

The school’s beginning-intermediate offerings include Acting I, Acting II, and Home School Acting for grades 2 through age 16. These classes focus on building character through ensemble building, pursuing objectives, overcoming obstacles, and using voice and body to create captivating characters.

As part of a year-long Teen Intensive Program, this fall director of education Zandi Carlson will lead a teen intensive along with guest artists/working theatre professionals. This class for grades 8-12 is aimed toward actors who are seeking professional-level training.

Specialty classes supply unique learning opportunities for BPA Theatre School students all year long, and this fall, students may choose from Theatre Dance and Group Voice, both of which are suitable for grades 4 and up.

BPA Theatre School fall Performance Series Classes include Youth Production I, “A Tale of Two Seas,” by Victoria Whitlow Tuttle, and Youth Production II, “Marvelous,” by Holly Arsenault and based on “The Snow Queen‚“ by Hans Christian Andersen.

Students from Youth Production I (grades 2-4) and Youth Production II grades 5-7) will perform in BPA Theatre School’s 2014 Fall Showcase on Nov. 12 and Nov. 14.

“Performing with BPA Theatre School means more than just getting on stage,” Carlson said.

“When it comes to performing, we believe in confidence building, character building, community building, celebrating the joy of artistic expression, and just plain old fun!“
