BEST Show Night!
Come out and see the BEST shows tonight starting at 7:00 in the Public Library Auditorium. The kids are putting up a total of 6 shows, 5 of which have been student directed! So come out for some laughs and support these amazing young actors and directors.
The Barrington Enrichment Summer Theater, or the B.E.S.T camp, is a Town of Barrington theater program which is held at the Barrington High School from 8:00-3:00 Monday-Friday. Here young actors are fully immersed in both show rehearsals and theater workshops ranging from Movement and Dance, to Monologues and Improv, to Juggling and Flag Spinning. Second session will also include our infamous stage combat workshop that culminates in a chocolaty and “bloody” outdoor mess! B.E.S.T. 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 keep the environment playful with theatre games and (a camp favorite) “Wacky Wednesdays.” Our actors are in an average of 3 shows and take 10 workshops each session! 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. Our second 3-week session begins Monday July 16th and runs through August 4th. There are still open spaces, so don’t waste the rest of your summer away, sign up today! Session 2 will include 5 more plays, many more workshops, and a Musical Review! Can’t do the whole 3-week session? Sign up for the one-week option to join the workshops and the fun! Register at the Town Manager's Office.
