Summer Studios 2015!

A Message from the Executive Artistic Director

Burgess Clark HeadshotIt is my great pleasure to welcome parents and students to our sixth smash year of the Boston Children’s Theatre Summer Studios! Whether your child is a beginner looking for a gentle introduction or an experienced performer, BCT offers something for all ages and levels. The classes and training available at BCT are a fun, creative and excellent way to discover any child’s potential.

This summer we are pleased to offer two convenient locations for our Summer Studios- in our Boston location at The Benjamin Franklin Institute and at the state-of-the-art facility at Shore Country Day School in Beverly, MA.  Our STUDIO DISCOVERY ages 4 – 6 will be held at the Boston Children’s Theatre Studios in Boston with 2 sessions at Shore Country Day School.  STUDIO ONE for ages 6 – 8 will be in Boston and STUDIO TWO programs for ages 8 – 12 will be held at the Boston Children’s Theatre Studios in Boston with 2 new sessions at Shore Country Day. Our STUDIO THREE Intermediate and STUDIO FOUR Advanced programs will both be held at Shore Country Day School in Beverly. To make it even easier, BCT will provide an optional shuttle at cost to and from our Boston Studio.

In addition, we are very proud to once again offer the unique “Behind The Scenes: Design and Production Studio 4.”  This program is the place to be if you love everything backstage.  Students will learn from top designers, production managers and technicians about all the different areas of technical theater, including hands-on experience in lighting, costumes, sound, scenery, props and stage management.  Students will also have the opportunity to put their skills to work on the mainstage productions.  BCT is one of the only children’s theater’s in the region to offer this unique, hands-on experience!

At BCT, we have many reasons to celebrate. We are thrilled to recognize our BCT students who are on their way to becoming the future of musical theater. BCT Summer Studios has become the premier training opportunity for young people in the greater Boston area. During the past 5 seasons, our BCT graduates have been universally accepted into the colleges of their choice, including NYU Tisch, Emerson, Syracuse, Cincinnati Conservatory of Music, and the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts in London. We congratulate them all!

No matter what level you and your child are exploring, BCT offers exceptional programming for all ages! So bring the suntan lotion and sunglasses; Boston’s own will be burning brighter than ever beneath BCT’s summer spotlight!
