Barrington Community Theater Shows Night!
The Barrington Community Theater will finish up its Fall Session with a festival of one-acts this upcoming Friday November 16th and Saturday November 17th. Actors from ages 8 to 18 have been working together on 6 fantastic shows. Performances will be held at the Barrington Public Library auditorium, and shows start at 7:00 p.m. each night. Come out to support these young actors this weekend!
The Barrington Community Theater, or BCT, is the Town-of-Barrington theater program which is held at the Barrington Middle School from 6:00-8:00 on Mondays and Wednesdays. Here young actors are immersed in theater as they work together to put these shows up in only 10 weeks.
BCT is a program driven to help our young actors grow through plenty of stage time and acting workshops based off college level theater courses. Our staff carefully tailors these classes to work with the actors’ abilities to allow each actor to grow at their own pace in a supportive and accepting environment. We feel it is important that each actor has the opportunity to have both leading and supporting roles, as both will be important in an actors life. Each play rehearses only one hour a week and most students are in two shows, making it a very small footprint on everyone's busy schedules.
Although our Fall Session is coming to an end, the Barrington Community Theater's Winter session will begin on January 7th 2013! The Winter session will include 8 more one-act plays, more theater workshops focused on helping our actors learn and grow.
NEW! BCT will also be offering a circus and performance skills workshop every week. Students can come and learn Juggling, Hula Hoop tricks, Poi Spinning, Yo-yo tricks, and other performance skills. These skills can help to increase coordination and boost self esteem.
Actors must pre-register at the Town Manager's office at the Barrington Town Hall. Contact Maurice Reid Eighme at Reid.CommunityTheater@yahoo.com with any further questions about the program.
