The BAM Radio Hour: A Unicorn's Tale
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!
