Professional Training & Guidance
At BITA you can fully expect to be pushed to - and beyond - your limits as a performer.
Up-to-date technique and the best industry teachers combine to give BITA a unique advantage over other groups that may focus on confidence.
Our hands-on patrons and guest tutors include Cleve September (Hamilton), Lauren Samuels, Kieran Brown and we have enjoyed workshops from Louise Dearman to Jonathan Reid Gealt.
At BITA, you are training to become a professional performer.
We pride ourselves on not rushing into popularist productions but instead choose to challenge what is normally expected of 'youth theatre'.
JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR
“... a walk in the park... A great contemporary take on a classic production, showcasing extremely impressive local talent”
Jenny Ell, Broadway World UK
"This cast are, quite simply, breathtaking. This production of Superstar breathes new life into a behemoth of a show, a feat which could only be accomplished by a talent pool like BITA."
Dan Richards, Black Country Radio
“...last night was breathtaking... The use of a live band was the final flourish to this outstanding piece of musical theatre and the standing ovation came as no surprise.”
“There is only so much that one can cram into a review and it isn't possible to mention everybody by name but, this is undoubtedly a team effort including a supremely talented ensemble cast, a dedicated and hard working creative team and a band that almost lift the stage up with the cast on it.”
Because we only work with an employ working teaching staff, our students often find themselves gaining professional experiences in their chosen field. These include:
