A workshop is defined as "a brief intensive educational program for a relatively small group of people that focuses especially on techniques and skills in a particular field."
Since 2009, the BCPA has been conducting 2-week workshops for students ages 8-18 in the summer that support the rehearsal and performances of the Miller Park Summer Theatre program. Previous to the BCPA's opening in 2006, the annual presentations of outdoor musical comedies were under the auspices of the Parks & Recreation Department.
When the Cultural District and Parks & Recreation merged in 2009, the program was adopted by the BCPA. On-going expansion of the BCPA's arts education program includes workshops throughout the calendar year.
Additionally, upon occasion touring artists will include some form of master class connected to their main stage performance. A master class is defined as an opportunity for students to get one-on-one brief, yet intensive training from an expert in a particular discipline such as singing, dancing, painting or some facet of acting.
Below are photos of a few of past master classes with touring artists.
