BPA Theatre School to stage Winter Showcase

Bainbridge Performing Arts’ Theatre School’s Winter Showcase will feature two plays for the price of one.

Younger students are showcased in the annual “Bainbridge to Broadway” student musical revue, and students from BPA’s Teen Intensive program will perform Tom Stoppard’s now-classic “Fifteen Minute Hamlet.”

In Bainbridge to Broadway, stranded time travelers with a gift for song are oppressed by an evil king who makes them wear fashions from decades they hate. Will this tragically time-travelled troupe of hippies from the ’60s and dancers from the ’80s manage to overthrow the tyrant and let their own freak flags unfurl?

Next up, take a deep dive into Shakespeare and Tom Stoppard’s “Fifteen Minute Hamlet,” as the teen students pair renaissance dance steps with their performance.

“BPA Theatre School’s Winter Showcase offers family fun for ‘kids’ of all ages,” said BPA Director of Education Liz Ellis. “These students still manage to blow me away and set a new bar with every performance.”

BPA Theatre School’s Winter Showcase appears at 7 p.m. Thursday, March 29 and Friday, March 30. Tickets, $10 for adults and $5 for seniors, youth, students, military, and teachers, may be purchased online at www.bainbridgeperformingarts.org, by phone at 206-842-8569 or in person at BPA (200 Madison Ave. North).
