Bluff City Theater programs for children and youth are a great way to build confidence and improve skills for young performers…

Our 2018 calendar of events is online now at including our teen mentorship program, BCT Academy classes and our popular BCT Summer Day Camps offered in collaboration with Hannibal Parks and Recreation and the Hannibal Arts Council.

Whether your child is an experienced thespian or a rank amateur, we’re sure to have a program for them.

Theater is fun and creative, helps children build lasting friendships and  build confidence.  Theater is an inclusive environment where children from all walks of life learn and play together.  Our programs teach children to respect themselves and others and we do not discriminate based on race, gender, handicap or financial resources.  All children are welcome at Bluff City Theater.
