Since 2005 the Bell Tower Theater has offered Kids Take the Stage, youth theater classes for kids in pre-school through 8th grade. After 13 years and more than 35 class sessions, this amazing program has served more than 2,800 kids of all levels and abilities. Our classes are designed not only to teach kids about acting and singing but more importantly to give them valuable skills that will help at school and in life. Creative Dramatics and Musical Theater programs like ours help with reading comprehension; building self confidence, teaching leadership, teamwork and accountability; and encouraging creativity.
The dedicated teachers that work in our program each have more than 40 years of teaching experience and have both created an environment where all kids are welcome. We regularly serve kids with a variety of special needs including cerebral palsy, autism, blindness and hearing loss. The parents of these kids come to the Bell Tower Theater because they know that their kids can find a safe environment where they can learn and grow. In a recent survey of parents of class participants 100% rated the classes as Excellent or Very Good.
