Club Night

UPDATE January 5, 2017: IMPORTANT CHANGE OF VENUE for BCT’s January Club Night/Directing Workshop on January 11th at 7pm. Due to a scheduling conflict at Bistro 33 (our usual club night location), please meet at JUSMAG on Sathorn Soi 1. Participants must RSVP to mimi.carter77@gmail.com to put their name on the security list and bring photo ID on the 11th. Directions & confirmation information will be sent to all who RSVP. Please contact Mimi now!

Original post follows:

Calling all potential directors! January 2018’s club night is for you; see the details in the infographic above (**Venue is now JUSMAG, not Bistro 33**).

We’ll also be hosting a Directing 101 workshop in March; stay tuned for details.

We hope to see you there!

The FREE BCT Production Workshop: January 20, 2018

BCT Production Workshop

As part of our New Year’s resolution to make 2018 another active and vibrant year for Bangkok Community Theatre, we plan to host a FREE Production Team Workshop to help train more producers on Saturday January 20, 2018, from 1:00 – 4:00 p.m, to be held at a private conference room on Sukhumvit Soi 16; please RSVP (below) no later than January 15 and we’ll send you further details.

As many of you know, we’d love to be staging at least four shows a year so that we can vary the type of material offered and always have something for everyone; however to do that, we need more producers and assistant producers to help get things going. That means we need you!

We held this workshop very successfully back in early 2016, but our membership has evolved over the past two years so we’d like to offer it again.  It’s a great opportunity for our members and friends to find out what it really takes to get a show off the ground – it’s a great learning experience and a lot of fun.

Please RSVP at info@bangkokcommunitytheatre.com. If for any reason your email gets lost in cyberspace and you don’t hear back, please follow up in a few days, or send us a message on Facebook.

Thank you & we hope to see you there!

The 2018 BCT Annual General Meeting and BOB Awards

BCT AGM 2018

Bangkok Community Theatre (BCT) proudly invites you to attend the combined Annual General Meeting & BOB Awards, to be held on Thursday February 1, 2018 at 7:30pm at Bistro 33.

Every February, BCT holds their Annual General Meeting to review the events of the past year and discuss plans for the future. If you are interested in getting involved with theatre in Bangkok, this is a great opportunity to meet like-minded souls.

Furthermore, the AGM is only part of the evening. The event also includes a free finger food buffet and the infamous BCT “Bob” awards, BCT’s tongue-in-cheek answer to the Oscars. BCT cast and crew members will win beautiful golden statuettes (A Bob) in honor of flagrant upstaging, nonsensical improvisation, most embarrassing moments and more. The Bobs are great fun and are kept secret up until the last minute!

So, if you are interested in finding out more about BCT’s 2018 activities, please join us on February 1. You must join BCT to attend the event (members renew their annual subscription and new members can join at the door  – B600 for adults & B300 for students) and enjoy door prizes, a free finger food buffet and cash bar.

Please RSVP to info@bangkokcommunitytheatre.com by January 25th; for catering, we must have all names in advance. Thank you!

A Christmas Carol: It’s a Wrap, and Happy Holidays from BCT

thank-youWith A Christmas Carol‘s successful run now completed and our annual Christmas party come and gone, BCT has finished its final show for the 2017 season; check out our gallery to see all of this year’s great shows. We hope you enjoyed the play and thank you for supporting Bangkok Community Theatre!

We are in the planning stages for our 46th season in 2018.  In March, we will stage “As You Like It” and in May we will hold our Fringe Festival.  Details on these and other productions will be announced very soon. We are also on the hunt for wonderful volunteers to help us on the Committee next year; contact us for more information.

We hold a monthly club night on the first Thursday of each month at Bistro 33 starting at 7PM.  You can always find out what BCT is doing on our website or our Facebook page!

Thanks again for a great season, and we look forward to welcoming you to shows again in 2018!

The BCT Committee and Production Teams

Volunteers needed for the BCT Committee

Help Wanted

BCT WANTS YOU ON THE COMMITTEE IN 2018

BCT will vote in a new committee in February 2018 and we need at least two more volunteers to stand. This is a wonderful opportunity to help turn BCT into the organisation you want it to be, so please consider volunteering. The committee member commitment isn’t a huge one and it is a lot of fun. We meet once a month after work at Bistro 33 to make sure current productions are moving ahead on track and to plan for future productions. Meetings are lively and fun and generally run a couple of hours.

Committee members each have their own personal duties (Costumes/PR/Club Nights, etc) and prior to the meeting they submit a short report outlining anything that they have done that month which should be shared with the rest of the committee and which does not require discussion. Some reports are as simple as: “Nothing to report.”   Anything that requires discussion/approval will be dealt with at the meeting.

We are looking for members to volunteer to take over the Website (not social media, just the website), Sponsorship, and a “Member at Large” who does not have a single duty but helps out as and when needed with other jobs. The Website volunteer should enjoy working with computers, though professional IT experience is not at all necessary; Sponsorship should have good communications skills, and Member at Large should have an open mind!  Importantly, we already have eight other experienced committee members who can provide all new volunteers with lots of help. The 2018 committee will begin their duties in February 2018.

If you think you might be interested in volunteering and want to find out more about the specific jobs, please speak with any committee member or email info@bangkokcommunitytheatre.com for more information.

Current 2017 Committee Members:
