BAMtheatre was founded in 2001 to create opportunities for young performers of all skill levels to receive professional musical theatre training and education, from preschool through college. It is our mission to empower young artists through theatre education by cultivating upstanding, creative, and inspired young artists who work to make the world a better place. It is our mission to have every student discover personal growth in every BAM encounter.

The following tenets guide our programming and curriculum choices at BAMtheatre:

  1. Inclusion: We are committed to giving all students in our programs a voice, a safe space to express themselves, and a place to form genuine connections with other students and artists. We make performing arts education accessible to everyone who wishes to participate in our programs.

  2. Education: Our process-driven environment enables a positive creative space that welcomes students of all ages and levels.┬áBAM’s powerful programs work to celebrate and engage all students collaboratively while targeting the needs of each individual student.

  3. Community: We are an organization that seeks to connect with our Hinsdale community, our greater Chicago community, and the theatre community at large through arts-based activities.

  4. Innovation: We are always seeking to learn more from our artists, students, and patrons, and vow to never stop developing as an organization.

BAM also stands by our four pillars which we strive to emphasize in every experience: focus, energy, enthusiasm, and joy. These are values that can be transferred into any facet of life – on or off the stage. BAM is a positive and collaborative environment that involves the whole student, allowing them to freely develop into the expressive and joyful beings they are!
