About TheaCo. and Byng Arts
The Byng Arts Mini School, established in 1999, is for above average students whose energies and passions are dedicated to the Fine Arts. As a school-within-a-school, Byng Arts is comprised of staff, students, mentors, and parents operating within the larger artistic and academic communities of Vancouver. Successful applicants will also be curious and self-motivated, with a demonstrated record of strong academic achievement.
Byng Arts students specialize in one of the following areas: Band, Choir, Drama, Media Arts, Strings, or Visual Arts (further opportunities are available in Literary Arts in Grade 9 and above), and attend several of their academic classes (including English, Social Studies and Science)together as a cohort of motivated learners.
In addition to an enriched curriculum, all students in Byng Arts participate in events that feature community artists, musicians and performers, thereby strengthening the collaboration between Byng and the professional arts community.
Each Spring, grade 10 & 11 students with the theatre bug in them will audition for the chance to receive a coveted spot into Lord Byng Fine Arts' Theatre Company. These students are chosen out of many dozens of applicants. Below are the members of the 2017/2018 Theatre Company. Are you ambitious enough to star in next year's productions?
