BCT Players' FAME Jr.
COming this summer!
Presenting a new performance series from BCT players:
Travel back to the year 1980 with the final class of New York City’s celebrated High School for the Performing Arts. Using music, drama, and dance, these students navigate the journey to adulthood while confronting the struggles, fears and triumphs all teenagers face. Featuring a high energy, contemporary pop score, this touching coming-of-age story is an international phenomenon inspiring generations to light up the sky like a flame!
The new BCT Players Summer Performance Intensive features four weeks of focused learning through the professional rehearsal process. New Director of Education Jessie Kisor will mentor these young artists and help them find their voice and passion through theatrical expression and performance while teaching them fundamental techniques of dance, voice and acting.
