For Schools


Let Our Stages Be Your Classroom


For 67 years, Birmingham Children’s Theatre has operated with a mission to educate, entertain and enrich the lives of children through the magic of professional theatre. Our philosophy? Every child of every background deserves opportunities to see live theatrical productions, and benefits from the exposure, immersion and integration of arts education into the learning process. Teachers and students benefit from Study Guides created in partnership with the Alabama Institute for Education in the Arts that meet State and National curriculum standards across subjects with customized lesson plans for each and every grade level. At BCT, we are EDUCATION wrapped in amazing, inspiring productions to engage your students.
