The Bridge Street Foundation, non-profit parent of Bucks County Playhouse and Lambertville Music Hall, recently announced that the Lambertville Music Hall will serve as the Bucks County Playhouse’s first Performing Arts Education facility beginning this month.
The artfully restored building will officially open Jan. 11 with the Playhouse’s popular Saturday Arts Program, offering musical theater for students aged 9-15 and improvisation for students 14-18.
Two additional weekly evening classes for adults will be offered in February: a Young Artists Festival, which will provide aspiring playwrights and actors (18 and up) with the opportunity to develop and perform new plays and musicals under the guidance of professional mentors, and Talk Story, presenting an opportunity for adults to tell their stories using a wide variety of theater and writing techniques.
All three programs will culminate in public performances at the Bucks County Playhouse.
“Our original goal was to take this cool old historic building, renovate it and repurpose it for the arts. We are very excited to see the beginnings of this idea realized with performing arts education classes starting in January,” said Kevin Dougherty, head of the Bridge Street Foundation.
