Announcing The Academy Players - (formerly known as Junior Players)

BHCT is focusing its mission on training and technique to encompass theatrical experiences that support individual growth, collaborative play, and artistic exploration. To that end, we are announcing The Academy Players. 

During  Fall of 2021,  we will have two sessions, each with a specific focus. The first session starting on September 7 will be centered on devised theatre pieces and creating characters. This session will culminate with performances on Tuesday, Oct. 26 at the Waterloo Center for the Arts Trick & Treat Event. 

The second session will run Nov. 9 - Dec. 14 and culminate in a holiday event for friends and family.

We will also have two sessions in the Spring - dates will soon be determined; both will end with a performance event. All sessions will meet from 4:30-6:00 on Tuesday evenings.

Ages for the Academy Players: 10 (at time of audition) -14 

Tuition for the year (includes four sessions - two in Fall and two in Spring) is $165.
