The Junior BAM Conservatory Ensemble (JrBCE) is an all new program designed for students to study acting and musical at an advanced level. An ensemble of 20 - 28 students train with experts in the theatre field to hone their craft and advance their performance skills. The program includes two terms: classes and workshops, and original productions created by the Junior Ensemble.


Due to the COVID-19 crisis, our Junior Ensemble was unable to perform the three original musicals as originally planned. We decided to end our first year of the Junior Conservatory Ensemble with a unique virtual project that we are all very excited for! We are going to adapt the JrBCE shows into a podcast series called: The BAM Radio Hour! 

Each show is an hour long and will be released as a podcast for all to tune in and listen to! More information on each podcast can be found below.

Production Director: Nick Thornton

Production Asst. Director/Stage Manager: Claire Drews

Production Music Director/Audio Editor: Patrick Hill

The JrBCE Production will be an original musical production created by the Junior BAM Conservatory Ensemble students. Throughout the spring term, the JrBCE Production Directors - professionals who specialize in new musical theatre writing and development -  will effortlessly guide the students through the organic process of how to devise, script, rehearse, and produce a completely original musical work. The objective of the JrBCE program is to create truly well-rounded artists. The unique experience of creating something from the ground up is an outstanding way to foster the creative minds of all students involved, allowing each student’s artistic voice to be ignited.
