Club Nights

BCT holds a monthly Club Night event for our members. We provide a variety of activities such as workshops, play-readings, movie nights and theatrical pub quizzes. Club Nights are also open to non-members of BCT for a nominal entry fee, which make them a great way to find out more if you’re thinking about joining us.


Whether you love being on stage, behind the scenes or in the audience, BCT is for you. English doesn’t have to be your first language, and you’re welcome whatever your level of experience. As a member you’re encouraged to take part in BCT shows and activities however you like, even if that’s just to meet new friends.

October Club Night

Improvisation Games
Thursday, 6th October

Impro games club night

October Club Night will be a fun and creative evening of Improvisation Games.

Improvisation games help you develop an instinctive response, spontaneity and the confidence you need to build when improvising. It can be an excellent tool to develop acting skills and can help generate creative material.

Join us at Bistro 33, at 7:00pm, have some good food and drinks, meet some pretty cool people and bring along your own friends too. And, it’s free for BCT members and a mere THB 100 for non-members…you can’t beat that for an entertaining evening out!

September Club Night

Headshot and Comp Card Club Night
Thursday 1st September
Comp Card structure
What are headshots and comp cards?
Do you need them?

A headshot and a comp card is a photograph or one-page collage of photos that reflects your look as an actor. If you are at all interested in working in film or TV, even as an extra, you need them.

For our September Club Night, photographer Salman Sohtra will be helping to take the perfect headshot that you can use for theatre, TV, commercials and movie auditions. As an added bonus, we will even create a comp card for you too!

We will be at our regular venue and time, Bistro 33 at 7:00pm, but this month we’ll be downstairs in the dining area. Apparently, we’ve been ousted from the upstairs room due to rehearsals for this show called Almost, Maine. (Have you got your tickets yet?)

We hope to see you there, and do pass on the word to all your aspiring and established acting friends.
As usual, Club Night is free for BCT members and only THB 100 for non-members.

Only 18 participants can be photographed on the night, and spaces are filling up fast. So don’t delay, email Suman at by August 30th to reserve a spot.

August Club Night

Script Analysis Club Night
Thursday 4th August

Script analysis

With the greatest apologies, the August club night at Bistro 33 will be changed to Script Analysis.

Hosted by Mimi Carter, this is an evening for people who have no experience, but would like to learn basic skills to understanding a script. You will receive resources and materials to guide you, and hopefully inspire you to grow more on your own!

“The theatre artist who perceive little on page puts little on stage. Inspiration without technique is merely flair.”

It will be at the same place, Bistro 33, at 7:00 pm but in the dining area. We hope to see you there and please do pass on the word to all your aspiring and established acting friends.

As usual Club Night is free for BCT members, and just THB 100 for non-members.

Show Update

This September you’ll be able to enjoy not one, but two BCT shows at the Blue Box Studio at M-Theatre.
Almost, Maine will run for 6 nights between 8th and 17th September and
Art will run for 5 nights between 23rd September and 1st October.

Here’s a sneak preview of the cast of Art:

Art characters

You can find more information about both productions on the show pages. There are links to the shows under the Events tab in the menu, and did you know you can find the show pages for all BCT’s previous shows by visiting the Gallery?

If you’d like to book tickets for either show, simply visit our Tickets page.
Don’t forget that there’s a discount if you book tickets for both shows at the same time!


July Club Night


July Club Night falls on Thursday, 7th July.

It will be a Stephen Sondheim/Andrew Lloyd Webber Songbook Night with an hour dedicated to each composer to take you through the songs and physical acting of the pieces. Videos and backing tracks will be provided to help you get into the world of each number. It will be of great help in building confidence not only in singing and acting, but for anyone who may want to audition for musicals. There will be a female solo, a male solo, and a duet by each composer from the following musicals: Company, Sweeney Todd, Into the Woods, Aspects of Love, Sunset Boulevard and Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.

Things get started from 7pm at Bistro 33, Sukhumvit Soi 33.
See you there!

Two new shows on the way

We had a hugely successful turnout to the auditions for Almost, Maine on 28th May at Bistro 33. Many thanks to everyone who came to audition. The production team had a tough time given that they could have cast the show nearly 4 times over given the number of people who came along!
The cast and team came together for the first read-though this Monday. There are a couple of pictures below, and if you want to see how rehearsals progress, you can follow along with the Almost, Maine – BCT Facebook page here.







Don’t forget, we have auditions for another show just round the corner.

The auditions for Art will be held this Saturday 11th June from 11am to 3pm at Bistro 33. It’s a wonderful script with 3 great roles for men, and if you’re interested you can head over to our Auditions page to download and submit your audition form.

13335898_1026243427463783_4636386770127198407_nJune Club Night was a relaxed, enjoyable evening, despite some racking of brains for the answers.

Four lovely women took up the challenge of the Club Night Theatre Quiz set by quizmaster and Club Night host, Suman Tharan. They knew a lot, but still discovered some very interesting insights into the theatre. And everyone walked away with some interesting prizes!

Coming up next month…

Club Night News – May

May Club Night photo

May Club Night was a lot of fun!

Last night, Michael Allman, director of the upcoming BCT production of Art, shared some invaluable insights as to how to make your audition stand out. Those who came along were able to dissect some scenes and read them learning how to add emotion, movement, humour and mystery in delivery. Everyone had fun, and even stayed back after to get to know each other.
