    Auditions for 2022-2023 Classes:

    Bellaire Theatre and Red Bird Productions (aka "RBP") are preparing for auditions for the 2022-2023 school year! The Department continues to create opportunities for students interested in the Theatre Arts. Courses offer a general background in theatre both as a performance and technical art.


    In the Red Bird Production Company (RBP) the students will take on all the many responsibilities of theatre productions. Students will act or work on a crew for at least one performance in the fall and one in the spring. Technical theatre students will learn hands on about the varied theatre arts of set design, lighting, sound, costumes, and makeup. Students in this class will support the productions produced by the Red Bird Production Company.


    - Entrance into the Intermediate and Advanced Theatre Production and Technical Theatre classes are by audition only. 

    - Any students are welcome to take Theatre 1 or Tech Theatre 1.
