BCT holds a monthly Club Night event for our members; check out our calendar. 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 makes 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.
Join Preeyakit ‘Fox’ Buranasin, musical director for our recent production of The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, on Thursday, November 2nd at Bistro 33 for an open workshop of his very own musical! Be a part of the creative process in developing an original work from the ground up. Participants will get to perform the first public reading of the book of the musical, and their reading will be punctuated by live, rehearsed performances of the songs by other BCT members, followed by a Q&A and feedback session to help guide this groundbreaking work to the next level.
So what are you waiting for? Please sign-up and let us know that you’re coming so we can prepare enough materials. RSVP to: fox2529 [at] hotmail.com If you are a fan of musicals, or a supporter of new, original works, you can’t miss this out on this opportunity!
Please note: Club Nights are free for members and B100 for guests.
Following our production of The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, Tickets are ON SALE NOW for Circle Mirror Transformation in November!
Circle Mirror Transformation written by Annie Baker is an award winning modern play that questions your idea of what acting actually is, to be performed at M Theatre, Bluebox Studio, on November 2-4 and 9-11. You can find the event page and ticket information here.
The story: In the small town of Shirley, Vermont, five strangers gather in a dance studio to embark on a unique journey together in a creative drama class for adults. Taught by Marty, their free-spirited and supportive leader, the group — Schultz, a recently divorced, emotionally vulnerable carpenter, Teresa, an earnest and vibrant former actress, James, Marty’s quiet and genial husband, and Lauren, a reserved and self-conscious high schooler — move through a series of acting exercises, ranging from the heart breaking to the ridiculous. In this one small room, through these few seemingly trivial games, quiet wars are waged, emotional wounds are nursed, and healing is finally, slowly, able to begin. In Annie Baker’s quiet masterpiece, Circle Mirror Transformation, the audience takes a transcendent journey through the mundane into the profound.
Circle Mirror Transformation will make you question what it is to act and how people go about learning how to do it. An absorbingly natural yet outrageously funny play that will prompt you to question what you really know about the noble art of acting.
Appropriate for audiences aged 15 and over, it’s sure to be an insightful performance!
Our heartfelt thanks go out to everyone involved in BCT’s well-received and highly praised rendition of The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, which wrapped to a sold-out performance on October 7, 2017. The show was a great success thanks to the hours and hours of volunteer work put in by the director, producer, stage manager, music director, production crew, and of course–the cast. We hope everyone enjoyed the show as much as BCT did putting it on!
