Opportunities for Students


    This page lists academic and enrichment opportunities for students that occur during the school year.

    Blumenthal Performing Arts Junior Ambassador Program 

    The Junior Ambassador program is designed to give a select group of high school juniors and seniors a look inside the world of the performing arts industry. In this program, students have the opportunity to usher for many performances at BPA, including touring Broadway shows, symphonies, local theater companies, and so many other great performances. Students will also attend seminars to learn more about what goes on behind the scenes at a performing arts center. Other seminars include career planning and resume help. Our biggest hope for this program is that students gain a greater appreciation for the performing arts.

    Criteria: Must be a junior or a senior; must be in good standing with the school; looking for volunteer opportunities; must submit a completed application
