Jr BAM Conservatory Ensemble
The Jr BAM Conservatory Ensemble (JrBCE) is a program designed for the creative young performer who is ready to expand their performance technique and knowledge of the musical theatre industry. With an emphasis on becoming truly well-rounded artists, this rich curriculum encompasses classes, competitive performance opportunities, as well as crafting and producing original pieces of musical theatre!
INTRODUCING THE 2021/22 JrBCE:
Students selected for the Jr BAM Conservatory Ensemble (JrBCE) will be invited to a full year of musical theatre training and performance opportunities. Focusing on both musical theatre performance as well as devising/creation, the curriculum will be broken down into three components: Classes, Festival Participation (JTF), and Original Musicals. Read more about each aspect of the program below.
In the first term of the program, students will meet for classes. From 1 - 3pm the students will have Musical Theatre Performance where they will hone the fundamental skills of Musical Theatre: Acting, Singing, & Dancing. From 3 - 5pm, the students will meet for Ensemble Based Creation. In this class, the students will learn how to connect with their peers on a deeper level through ensemble development and creation. Throughout the course of study, this class will evolve into a pre-extension of what will become the JrBCE Original Musicals.
JUNIOR THEATRE FESTIVAL:
The Junior Theater Festival is a festival designed for serious minded performers who are committed to working hard and delivering an amazing performance. Organizations from all over the world attend each year and present a 15 minute condensed version of a Broadway Jr or Kids show under the license of Music Theatre International or Disney Musicals. The weekend festival includes the show presentation, workshops, guest speakers, awards, a dance party, and a ticket to a Broadway-style performance.
We will begin rehearsing the show in January, and then travel to the festival, which will be held February 18 - 20 in Sacramento, CA. Please note that festival participation and travel fees are additional costs, and not included in the tuition for JrBCE. We require one parent chaperone for every 4 students in attendance. Parents are highly encouraged to attend the festival. Please note that travel and festival participation fees are not included in JrBCE tuition.
In the final term of the JrBCE program, the students will come together to rehearse and produce their original musicals. Typically, students are divided into three writing teams, and each team writes their own short musical. The musicals will then be produced and performed over the final weekend in April.
