What is Advanced Performers?

Imagine taking a bow at a national theatre festival after performing for other musical theatre students, teachers, and Broadway pros!
That’s the experience students ages 9–18 will have as members of Advanced Performers, the Bay Area Children’s Theatre’s award winning musical theatre team!
Our Advanced Performers develop musical theatre skills and create in-depth ensemble-driven works guided by BACT specialists in dance, voice, and creative storytelling. We complete our competitive-level training, by traveling together to the Junior Theatre Festival West in Sacramento where leading professionals critique the team’s performance of an excerpt from our show. We apply their insights and guidance to the final, full-scale performance for family and friends.

Junior Theatre Festival

The Junior Theatre Festival West brings students, teachers, and outstanding musical theatre professionals from all over the United States together in Sacramento to celebrate musical theatre and learn from each other. Produced by the Junior Theater Group and iTheatrics, the festival attracts thousands of participants each year! Student groups perform a 15-minute selection from a Broadway Junior Collection® musical for adjudication, participate in workshops, watch other groups perform, and enjoy performances by Broadway and Disney stars.
