2017-2018 Season

Ah! Wilderness by Eugene O'Neil

Directed by Dr. Rick Abel
The play takes place on the Fourth of July 1906 and focuses on the Miller family.
Perhaps the most atypical of the author's works, the play presents a sentimental
tale of youthful indiscretion in a turn-of-the-century New England town.

Performances: Oct 6 & 7 at (7:30 pm) & Oct 8 at (2 pm.)
Fine Arts Auditorium


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


Curtains - the Musical

Join us for the spring musical, “Curtains!” The mystery/rom-com/who-dun-it is set during 1959 in Boston, Mass.
at a theatre where police detective Frank Cioffi attends the opening night of a musical when during
the curtain call the star of the show, Jessica Cranshaw, is murdered. It is up to Cioffi to solve the
case and save the show! Music and lyrics written by John Kander and Fred Ebb,
