Founded in 2004 as Active Arts Theatre for Young Audiences, ?Bay Area Children's Theatre encourages children to explore literature, language and the arts by producing stage adaptations of children's books in Berkeley and San Ramon, as well as on tour to Bay Area schools and libraries. BACT's productions feature professional adult performers working with artistic teams who understand how to make theater compelling and accessible for young audiences. The company also creates new work and mounts productions specially designed for preschool age children. BACT's active and growing Youth Education Program complements their theatrical offerings by giving children and teens performance opportunities in theater arts through classes, workshops and summer camps.
