In 1994, Bakersfield Music Theatre started the BMT Summer Workshop for ages 6-18. A morning and afternoon session each produced two musicals each summer. In 2000, a third workshop was added, bringing in an additional 300 young performers each year. Students learn from professionals and experts in the fields of drama, dance and music. Their instruction culminates in two public performances following each workshop session. In 2014, BMT moved its educational operations to the Stars School of the Performing Arts facility located in northwest Bakersfield. Currently, the school offers its annual summer workshops and Stars Elite program.
Our mission is to provide your child with quality training in the performing arts. With workshops in drama, dance, and musical theatre your child will learn and develop life long skills.
