CAST REGISTRATION CLOSED FOR VIRTUAL SUMMER PROGRAMS

We hope you and your families are healthy and safe during this difficult time! Here at Brighter Connections Theatre, we are done with our 8th annual season of programming in collaboration with the University of Dayton Theatre, Dance, and Performance Technology Program.

The virtual program used Zoom. Links were sent to registered cast members' parents and guardians. 

Schedule for Ages 8-18:

You may choose one or both options.

Option A: 

June 2 - July 9

Tuesdays and Thursdays

4:00 to 5:00 pm via Zoom

Cost: $20

T-shirt: Included

Parent Meeting: June 1 at 6:00 pm via Zoom (optional)

This group will be similar to our regular programming, in which we will follow a typical schedule saying hello, playing a game, moving our bodies, and creating sketches, writing monologues, improvising, etc. We hope to live stream a performance at the end for friends and family, so this option would be a typical commitment where we ask that cast members are present and that parents let us know in advance if students cannot attend the session online. 

For registration, please see MEMBER FORMS. REGISTRATION IS CLOSED.

Option B:

June 3, June 17, July 1

Wednesdays

4:00 to 5:00 pm via Zoom

Cost: Free

Parent Meeting: June 1 at 6:00 pm via Zoom (optional)

These 3 sessions will be offered separately from Option A.  A BCT instructor will lead the group through a workshop focusing on a specific skill. 

For registration, please see MEMBER FORMSREGISTRATION IS CLOSED.

On Friday, September 27, 2019, at 7:30 P.M. at the University of Dayton Boll Theatre,  the University of Dayton's Theatre, Dance, and Performance Technology Department hosted their third annual fundraiser to benefit Brighter Connections Theatre. The show featured UD's On the Fly student improv organization and Brighter Connections Theatre cast members. We all laughed and enjoyed the show!
