BPA Theatre School now enrolling for spring classes

The Bainbridge Performing Arts Theatre School is now registering for an enticing array of spring classes for pupils of all ages.

Students ages 4 to 7 will blossom in a super-positive growth experience as part of “Creative Drama,” which instructs students on using their faces, bodies, and voices to tell a story.

Students ages 6 to 8 will learn two song-and-dance numbers and engage in imaginative skill-building theatre games in “Introduction to Musical Theatre.”

This spring, BPA officials are also excited to offer two production classes for students ages 8 to 10 and 11 to 14.

BPA Theatre School takes on the hottest retro-gaming experience around with its own parody of the classic Dungeons and Dragons.

Production camps are an opportunity for students to gain the experience of auditioning, being cast, and learning lines, blocking, tech, and performance. In these popular classes, students will get a taste of what it’s like to perform in a mainstage musical, culminating with performances in the Spring Send-Off.

Amanda Yeoman Brooke leads “Teen Lab – Acting for the Camera” for in a six-week class for students ages 12 to 19.

Students will explore the subtlety, vulnerability, and techniques that come with acting for the camera, and the class will discuss the prospects for professional, on-camera acting in Seattle, and how commercial/corporate/TV/film auditions work.

Furthering this real-world experience, students will work on scene studies that require original, multiple-page scenes, and BPA will film these as class takeaways, so each student leaves with material to begin or add to their acting reel.
