Barrington Stage Company’s Professional Youth Theatre is designed to extend the professionalism of our main stage to local youth ages 13-18. More than 100 students audition annually for 16 places in this free program. Accepted students sign a contract and enter an Equity rehearsal and performance schedule under professional director and choreographer Christine O’Grady (Hair on Broadway). This extended run teaches the students the discipline and spontaneity necessary to repeat a performance for 8 shows each week. Performers also attend all BSC productions, engage in talkbacks with the casts, and participate in master classes in song interpretation, audition prep, and the business of theatre.
Stay tuned for the announcement of Barrington Stage’s 2015 Youth Theatre production!
