Registration Open Now for New Britain Youth Theater Programs


NEW BRITAIN >> New Britain Youth Theater has announced programs and performances for spring and summer. Among the classes offered are acting skills, improv, puppetry, and musical theater. Performances range from Beatrix Potter and Mark Twain to Shakespeare and Disney.

Spring classes begin on Saturday, March 25. Classes in Stage Performance Skills are offered in two sections--one for ages 6 to 10, and a second section for ages 8 to 12. The classes focus on building skills that make actors better stage performers--and also better presenters and speakers. They're ideal for younger actors, children who want their first experience onstage--or a little more experience--or even older students who want to enhance their skills or who aren't able to audition and rehearse for NBYT's productions. Classes in Improv Skills are designed to give students age 10 and up a basic understanding of improvisational theater. No prior experience in theater or improv is necessary, and experienced improv performers in the class are challenged to expand their skills.

Classes are held at the company's new Studio Theater space at the Berlin YMCA Program Center at 362 Main Street in the Kensington section of Berlin. All classes meet on Saturdays for one-hour for an eight-week session, ending with a "share day" performance for family and friends.

Registration is also open for the theater's summer programming. The summer musical, The Lion King Jr., is open to children and teens, ages 7 to 14, from any town. Rehearsals will be held over a four-week half-day program on Mondays through Fridays from July 3-28 (except July 4). Program hours are 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Although the full program is limited to ages 7 to 14, a limited number of children ages 5 and 6 will join the program during the final week to be part of the cast. All children who register will be cast in the show, and performances will be held on July 28, 29 and 30. Rehearsals and performances will be held at Holmes Elementary School in New Britain.

In addition to the summer musical, NBYT is planning shorter one-week programs this summer, and each will end with a short share performance. …
