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.

Membership

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.

Online Ticketing

If you’ve already bought your tickets for Aladdin, you will have noticed a change in the way we are selling tickets for BCT shows. After numerous requests from audience members to make the whole process easier, we have started using One Place Events to list and sell tickets to our shows.

One Place banner

One Place Events is a great resource to see what’s going on in Bangkok, from music to movies to night markets, and of course, theatre. You can filter everything that’s listed by category to make it easy to see upcoming events that you might be interested in, which includes plenty of free activities. It also makes it easy to buy tickets for the events that charge for admission, with plenty of options for online payments. Even tried and trusted ATM and bank transfers get an upgrade with printed scannable barcodes like you find on many bills here.

If you’ve been looking for a comprehensive listing of events in Bangkok, then One Place Events is a great place to start. And if you haven’t bought your tickets for Aladdin yet (which are selling like hot cakes, by the way), then this is the perfect opportunity to try out our super slick new ticketing system! You can find us under the Theatre heading, or navigate to the event listing through our own Tickets page.

Give it a try, and we’ll see you at Aladdin.

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 sctharan@gmail.com 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!
