TUCK EVERLASTING Cancelled at Beavercreek Community Theatre

bctIt is with great disappointment that BCT must announce that due to the current COVID situation, we must cancel our opening production of TUCK EVERLASTING.

While things are beginning to open up, we feel we must keep the health and best interest of our performers and patrons the top priority, and to move forward with this production would not do that.

We miss you all and hope that things return to normal soon.

Auditions Announced for IT’S ONLY A PLAY at Beavercreek Community Theatre

bctBCT announces OPEN AUDITIONS for IT’S ONLY A PLAY by Terrence McNally

It’s the opening night of The Golden Egg on Broadway, and the wealthy producer Julia Budder is throwing a lavish party in her lavish Manhattan townhouse. Downstairs the celebrities are pouring in, but the real action is upstairs in the bedroom, where a group of insiders have staked themselves out to await the reviews. The group includes the excitable playwright; the possibly unstable wunderkind director; the pill-popping leading lady, treading the boards after becoming infamous in Hollywood; and the playwright’s best friend, for whom the play was written but who passed up this production for a television series. Add to this a drama critic who’s panned the playwright in the past and a new-in-town aspiring singer, and you have a prime recipe for the narcissism, ambition, childishness, and just plain irrationality that infuse the theatre—and for comedy. But don’t worry: This play is sure to be the hit they have all been hoping for.

Production Dates: April 24 – May 3, 2020
Directed by Debra Kent
Produced by Mary Mathieu
