Program Description:

The goal of the BARC Youth Theatre Program is to give every student the opportunity to participate in a true theatrical experience, no matter what their experience level may be. Our program is directed by Grace Glastetter. Grace is a Sophomore at Sarah Lawrence College studying directing and acting. She is thrilled to be directing for BARC Theater this year after performing with the program previously. Grace has been involved with many local theater companies over the last 8 years, including being a camp counselor for Carpe Diem Theater from 2019-2021, and directing two musicals with the company in the summer of 2021. She has most recently performed in the area with Home Made Theater in Mamma Mia! (Lisa). Grace is also studying psychology and Spanish in college and enjoys going to the city in her free time.

This program is for students entering 4th grade through to June graduates. It runs from May through August (most intensive in July & August). Registration opens in early March and closes at the end of April.  Auditions are held at the beginning of May, and rehearsals are afterschool on Mondays & Wednesdays in June, with a more extended schedule in July & August. The production is the second and third weekend in August. The cost of this program is $90 per student for cast members and $45 per student for crew members, with a multi family member discount applied for more than two siblings registering.
