BPA Theatre School Enrolling for Spring 2017 Classes & Break Camps

BPA Theatre School is now taking registrations for the Spring 2017 Break Camps and Spring 2017 Quarter. Inspiring the kind of creativity, grace, and empathy that enrich every aspect of life, BPA Theatre School's spring camps and classes for Pre-K through Adult yield artistic benefits for both hobbyists and career actors.

From fanciful to mythical, BPA Theatre School's spring break offerings include "Story Drama: Dr. Seuss" for ages 4 - 7, "Story Drama: Star Wars" for grades 1 - 3, and "Making and Moving in Masks!" for grades 3 - 5 and 6 - 8. Expert mask artist, actor, teacher, and carver Craig Jacobrown will work with the older students to create character masks and bring them to life through posture and movement.

Nourish and grow your creative spirit with BPA Theatre School's Spring 2017 Quarter! Classes include "Creative Drama: From the Earth to the Moon" for ages 4 - 7 with Kate Drummond, "Intro to Musical Theatre: Big Fish" for Grades 1 - 3 with Patrick Dalrymple and Kate Drummond, "Doctor Doolittle in the Moon" for Grades 2 - 4 with Patrick Hurlburt, "Doctor Doolittle and the Puddleby Pantomime" for Grades 5 - 8 with Liz Ellis, "Teen Intensive: Spring Send-Off" for Grades 8 - 12 with Liz Ellis, and "Lifetime Theatre for ages 50+ with Barbara Deering. Registrations are also underway for The Actor's Tool Belt - a rotational series of classes for ages 16 and older led by Tony Award-winning actress Dinah Manoff.

Offering year-round classes and camps for students of all ages and experience levels, BPA Theatre School has a longstanding tradition of supporting learners of all ages to build the skills and confidence to perform on stage and in everyday life. Younger students are taught to act, sing, and dance while developing the soft skills like teamwork and personal responsibility on which they can call in any classroom, work, or social setting. Teens and adults get the joy of being silly, glamorous, or sincere with the added benefit of growing not just their portfolio, but also their poise and tenacity. Director of Education Liz Ellis reflects, "We wouldn't work as hard as we do to provide the best possible theater school program if we didn't believe in its value and efficacy. And we wouldn't do theater school at all if it wasn't so dang much FUN!"
