BTE Theatre School

Kids who learn theatre skills learn communication, collaboration, creativity, critical thinking and confidence. They learn to use their imaginations to solve problems and make things happen. These are skills and abilities that are vital to success in school and the adult world and to a healthy, balanced life.

BTE Theatre School offers a range of classes, workshops, and camps designed to teach the fundamentals of the theater arts on an age-appropriate basis: critical reading, aesthetic analysis, creative thinking and problem solving, collaboration, theatre technology, oral interpretation, movement, and more.

Courses are led by BTE Theatre School staff and members of the Ensemble
