Youth Programs

Since 2005 the Bell Tower Theater has provided high quality youth programs that provide both entertainment and arts learning to kids of all ages. Over the years we have touched the lives of thousands of area kids and their families.


Kids Take the Stage Youth Theater Classes

Multiple times each year we offer children's theater classes for grades Kindergarten through 6th grade. This program serves 250 kids each year.


These classes teach such theater skills as acting, singing, pantomime, improvisation and stage make-up, but more importantly they help kids develop real life skills like confidence, reading, team work, self-esteem and communication. Learn More


Free Summer Musical Program

In 2013 this program expanded to include a second full scale musical with High School Students as the performers and technicians.


Celebrating its 16th year 2023, this program provides a free theatrical learning experience for more than 200 kids ages 7 to 18 and a low-cost cultural opportunity for more than 3,500 adult and child audience members.


Our program is the only one in the area that does not charge a fee. It is also the only program that provides kids with the chance to work backstage, reinforcing the idea that theater is a collaborative art form and that designers, costumers, box office staff and technical crews are just as important to the success of a show as the cast.  Learn More
