A range of programs and partnerships throughout the year feature BSA students and faculty working closely with other artists, scholars, educators and philanthropists to enrich our cultural landscape and create opportunities in the greater Baltimore community. Stay tuned to our homepage and calendar at www.bsfa.org for details and ticket info on all these events!
For many years, BSA and BSO have been working closely together and this year will be no different when the two organizations collaborate for a second year to present The Nutcracker at The Modell Lyric, December 20-22. BSA dancers and a BSA alum, Andrew Grams, as conductor, and the BSO players all on the big stage at the Modell Performing Arts Center at The Lyric – What a wonderful way to fete the holidays this December! An invitation to children from city schools to attend the final dress rehearsal free will also be an exciting part of the production.
For the 12th year, this ongoing annual partnership with the Red Cross will feature BSA’s senior acting ensemble. They help to write and then perform educational shows that are presented at public elementary and middles schools around the area. Topics for the show vary, but all of them address important issues relevant for children and families in the community. BSA students visit about 20 schools each year in December and January.
Each year, Theatre and Stage Design students also work closely with scholars at the Maryland Historical Society on researching, writing, costuming and presenting historical "scenes" that are performed at MdHS and other venues, including National Parks sites, for home-schooled and city students.
Over the years, BSA has been honored by visits from luminaries in the arts, including many alumni, who generously conduct master classes or workshops, often open to the public. Keep an eye out on our facebook page for news about who is in town and who is at BSA!
