B’DAT is the Beacon Drama Art Theatre. We are a large group of student theatre artists that collaborate to produce theatre performances of all kinds. We produce a three show season, which includes a black box production, and two productions on in the larger theatre. We also produce a huge vocal music/ choir event, the freshman project, the TDF Student play festival and senior thesis projects. We collaborate with professional theatre artists and produce ambitious and mature performances that defy the standards of high school “drama clubs”. We are a pre-professional theatre company of young people. Jo Ann Cimato is the B’DAT Program Director.
Students that are ready to work hard and learn on the job should attend a B’DAT Town Meeting (one is held at the top of each semester) to get involved! B’DAT is open to all students in good academic standing at Beacon regardless of experience or grade. We are looking for students who are positive spirited creative types that can commit to a project and follow through. While in production for a main stage, B’DAT meets afterschool 2-5 times a week, depending on your role or job on the show.
