"Blessed is the theatre for the theatre is magic, and blessed are those who create that magic, thats us!"
1 terrific summer

Into the Woods
A huge thank you to everyone who has come out year after year to support our local kids as they perform doing what they love. That is a wrap to our 2019 summer, ladies and gentlemen!
Where art meets youth
The Bayou Playhouse has opened its doors to young actors since the beginning in 2009, but it seemed that there was something missing. Then in the summer of 2011, the Bayoukidz Summer Intensive Program was born.
In the Summer of 2017, we rebranded our Bayoukidz program to, Rougarou Theatre Troupe.
We are currently working on our eighth year intensive, a four week long rehearsal period in June, 2019. For the weeks that the children are with the Playhouse, they receive teaching from all types of professional disciplines; ranging from musical, choreographers, acting coaches and directors. With us they learn about stage etiquette, lighting design, and prop and set construction.
Sometimes, we get the few kids who are extremely interested in working behind the stage and like to help in creating the magic, well, we have a spot for them too! They can work side-by-side with the director and learn the ends and outs of being a stage manager.
STUDENTS WILL LEARN:
Various styles of acting
Theatrical production process
Singing (for those inexperienced)
Behind the Scenes
Lights and Sound
Prop set up
Spiking the stage
