Throughout the year, BBAR provides free workshops for adults interested in learning about the various aspects of theater and production management.
Every summer, BBAR selects a group of local high school and college students to participate in a technical theater management paid internship at THEARC Theater. Students learn the fundamentals of production and stage management, participate as ushers during summer events, and present a production of their own. Students are selected in the spring and attend the program between June-August annually. Ultimately, these internships are aimed to help youth gain the tools necessary to obtain employment in theater management.
