Student Leadership Program

Student Leadership Program!

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to Direct, Music Direct or Choreograph a show? Do you want to see what happens behind the scenes and collaborate with your teachers? Then join us as a part of our Student Leadership Program!

Over the years, we have seen huge growth from students working with us in a volunteer capacity. As a result, we have created the Student Leadership program to offer this training to a wider range of participants interested in taking their experience with Bay Area Children's Theatre to the next level. This is a three-tiered, scaffolded training opportunity for students age 12-18. Participants are expected to be role models to their peers as they garner valuable on-the-job training. Get a bird's eye view of the creative process and develop big-picture understanding and appreciation for the work that goes into making one of our productions happen. You can also expect to broaden your own technique as a performer through collaborating with the teaching artists on your team. We look forward to receiving your application!
