Barter Youth Academy opens registration

August 13 – September 13, 2019 @ Barter Theatre

ABINGDON, VA — Barter Youth Academy has opened registration for Fall classes. Classes begin in September and are held in Bristol Tennessee, Bristol Virginia, Abingdon, Virginia, Kingsport, Tennessee and Johnson City, Tennessee. Registration is open until Sept. 13.

Barter Youth Academy is an innovative theater education program that teaches students teamwork and creativity in a fun, fast-paced rehearsal environment. This Fall, Barter Youth Academy students bring literary classics to the stage during Barter's "Page to Stage” Season. The season includes "Mother Goose Nursery Rhymes" for ages 5-7, "The Velveteen Rabbit" for elementary school age groups and "The Prince and the Pauper" for middle and high school age groups.

Students learn acting techniques and performance skills while working together on a minimally-produced play for their final demonstration. Whether your student loves dance, comedy, drama, music or anything in between, BYA's team of theatre professionals create an educational experience tailored to their growth and learning.
