Bay Area Children’s Theatre education programs teach the art of live performance to thousands of students throughout the East Bay and San Francisco. Our specialty is “triple threat” musical theatre—singing, dancing and acting. We believe, and we tell parents, that theatre education prepares students for success in the world ahead. In addition, we offer in-school residencies, after-school classes and summer camps for students aged 5 – 15 range from introductory theatre experiences to full-scale productions. BACT students gain the skills and the confidence to stand tall, speak up and sing out. They learn what it takes to create an entire show or create their own story. And—just as in sports—they participate in defining and achieving goals as a member of a well-trained, well-prepared team.
BACT teaching artists are highly regarded for their professional skills, their rapport with students of all backgrounds, and their emphasis on goal-setting, self-discipline, teamwork—and fun!
