Ah! Wilderness by Eugene O'Neil

Fine Arts Auditorium

All students - Free

Student Production- Horror Movie Survival Guide

Horror Movie Survival Guide is a fun and funny depiction of many "scary" situations
depicted in horror movies and how we can survive them. This production
is completely student run as part of the BCC Play Production class.
As part of the Play Production class, students take complete
responsibility in mounting a short play: selecting the play,
auditions, directing, designing, technical and promotions.
This year the students also decided to write and develop the script.

Performance: Nov. 6  (7:00 pm) in Fine Arts Auditorium
Free to the public/donations accepted at the door
