 NEW classes & workshops for winter 2017/18!

THANK YOU to our amazing Academy students and families for your continued support of your performers and our programs! We are proud to contribute to the Broomfield community. So far in 2017, we have taught over 200 individual students through our Academy classes and Youth Theatre productions. More than 75 students have been taught by 10 student leaders (BYLP) and our fabulous artistic staff, and we've brought FREE programming in schools and local community spaces (such as Refuge Café) to more than 90 young people! 1500+ audience members (& 100+ FREE tots) have enjoyed original renditions of classic stories during our Fantastic Friday Family Theatre, Romeo & Winifred, and Singin' In The Rain productions at the Broomfield Auditorium (nearly 300 of whom were FREE audience members from local schools) and we're gearing up to host another several hundred in November with Mary Poppins presented by BSYT. Our special-feature this summer, Jaws the Musical, was entirely produced and performed by our amazing BackStory Youth Leadership (BYLP) teens and their peers and had us all laughing hysterically! We couldn't do any of this without the amazing participants in our programs and hope you'll join us soon for a class, workshop, or performance!
