Education

The Bucks County Playhouse Education Program serves children, teens, and adults through a wide variety of programs. It aims to achieve artistic excellence in a community-centered environment, in continuation of the Playhouse’s rich history of mentoring young people, contributing to the American theatre canon, and fostering relationships between established and emerging artists. Programs range from student matinees to monthly master classes to year-round programs that culminate in performances on the Playhouse stage. Content includes musical theatre, playwriting, and the creation of original theatre. From the historic Student Theater Festival, now entering its 49th year, to the BCP Youth Company, our summer conservatory for teens, to master classes with Broadway stars, there are many ways to leap in to the performing arts.
