The Ridgefield Theater Barn Kids (RTBK) programming is year-round. We offer workshops in the spring and the fall, and five weeks of workshops in the summer. We have a resident Glee Club and Learn To Sing Program, as well as dramatic play workshops for both older and younger students. In addition, we offer classes to help our students master the audition process all the way through their college applications. We also have Improv comedy classes for kids and teens.

While the desire to perform is awesome, we recognize that there are many ways in which a child can learn to contribute and thrive in theater, and that makes the RTBK program so unique.

From lighting and sound design to costuming, props and stage management, each RTB Kid gets hands-on experience and ownership of putting a show together. As Theater Program Director Stacie Moye says, “My approach to teaching always begins with the process. It is my belief that students who are empowered with the proper performance skills, confidence and the freedom to express themselves will have a successful performance experience.  I promote inclusion, collaboration and risk taking.  Working with kids in this atmosphere gives them the tools they need to develop a lifelong love of their craft.” Music Program Director Anya Caravella believes that in music and voice, a good foundation is everything! “Learning the fundamentals of correct singing lays the foundation for lifelong vocal health. Kids who learn to sing in a loving & supportive environment gain confidence and develop their musical ear through ear training and harmonizing exercises But most importantly, RTB Kids make friends and have FUN!” As a result, our students are adaptable, tolerant, respectful and kind. RTB Kids take ownership of not only their roles on-stage, but also have responsibility for costumes, props, and working with the stage manager. Our alumni include both Broadway performers AND Broadway stage
managers!
