Summer Acting Program 2016

Has your child or teen caught the acting bug?

B Street Theatre announces our Summer Acting Program for 2015, a series of workshops for kids of all ages and skill levels. Our Summer Acting Program offers students a fun, exciting, and creative environment from professional instructors active in the fields of theatre, improvisation, and acting instruction. Each program lasts up to two weeks and is led by B Street veteran Kurt Johnson. Young performers learn the fundamental tools needed to develop their physical, vocal, and emotional range in a way that is both fun and playful. Concepts are presented through a series of acting exercises, theatre games, improvisation, rehearsal process, and performance. Every program concludes with a final showcase production where our young actors show off everything they’ve learned. Come and join the fun!

Summer Program FAQ

Is there class on the weekend?

Classes are taught Monday-Friday. There is no class on the weekend. However, this year, both the Youth sessions will have their showcases on a Sunday night. Those dates are July 3rd and August 7th for the Youth sessions 1 & 2 respectively. This change was made to accommodate the B Street Theatre production schedule. The Teen and Junior sessions will still have their showcases on the final Monday of class.

Why does the camp end on a Monday?

Program sessions usually have a FINAL SHOWCASE on the last Monday of class. The B Street Theatre has a very busy performance schedule and Monday evening is one of the few times when the stage is consistently available.
