Theater Classes

Theater I

Our primary theater class that produces a mainstream Broadway musical each year featuring Backlight students. This year we will be continuing our work on “Mary Poppins” in partnership with the Nashville Repertory Theater as it was unable to be performed this past April. The show will be produced at whatever capacity is available to us in April 2021. New students will only be admitted to Theater 1 this year if a space opens up due to a student from last year’s cast needing to withdraw.

 

Mondays: Group 1 – 11:30am-1:30pm & Group 2 – 2pm-4pm – CLOSED

 

Cost: $100/month

Theater II

Theater 2 is Backlight’s secondary theater class that works with a more intimate group to dive deeper into how to strengthen creative abilities and utilize them in smaller varying productions.  This year in Theater 2 we will be producing a small production of an original work by a local playwright entitled “Of Birds Who Try” for the first half of the term. During our second term we will host our popular “New Works Writers Lab” course in which students will write an original play that will be performed in a live reading by professional actors.

 

Thursdays 11am-1pm

 

Cost: $80/month
*All classes take place at the Southern Academy of Irish Dance 1710 General George Patton Dr. #107 Brentwood, TN. 37027

Backstage

Our newest class for students who enjoy theater but prefer to be BACKstage rather than ON the stage. In this class students will learn about all the work that is done to produce a show and work together to produce and direct their own play performed by professional actors.

Cost: $40/month
