Description Twenty high school juniors and seniors become critics in this highly successful program now being offered for the sixth time. In an intensive ten-week program that takes place after school at BAM, selected students work with a master teacher to learn more about theater and hone their critical writing skills. Participants attend and review at least three BAM performances and meet with professional critics and theater artists. Past guests have included Ben Brantley, Margo Jefferson, Bonnie Marranca, Linda Winer, and Anthony Tommasini. An anthology of the students' reviews is compiled at the end of the course. Both the theater tickets and after-school sessions are at no cost to students. Classes will meet one day a week from 4-6 beginning in February 2004.
