Celebrating 27 Years!
BCCT a is non-profit, community theater group. Our mission
is to be the best community theatre company by enriching, entertaining and educating our communities through outstanding theatrical experiences featuring youth actors.
BCCT presented an outdoor, socially-distanced Christmas experience in December. A CHARLIE BROWN CHRISTMAS, that Christmas classic from creator Charles M. Schultz. This timeless presentation is sure to warm the hearts of young and old alike. Come see Charlie Brown, his pals and the little tree that could. It's amazing what a little love can do!
When life hands you lemons...
With just a week to go in our rehearsal process for Moana Jr., the state of New Jersey mandated a quarantine in response to COVID-19. Our show at the Strand Theater was indefinitely postponed with no reopening in sight.
...you make lemonade!
Four months later, BCCT's Theater in the Park was created!
When Moana Jr. was "postponed" at the beginning of our state's quarantine, we had no idea that several months later, our return to the theater would still be so uncertain and performing in front of a live audience would seem impossible.
Nonetheless, our cast attended weekly Zoom rehearsals from their homes with no performance in sight, in hopes that something would open-up. When it became clear that this would not happen any time soon, our focus shifted to an outdoor setting for the production. BCCT wanted to bring live theater back to our community and most importantly we wanted the cast to have the opportunity to perform the show in a safe environment.
We started re-directing and re-designing for an outdoor, socially-distanced venue, and the kids kept rehearsing via Zoom. When allowed, outdoor rehearsals began in our studio parking lot and week by week watched the cases in NJ go down and restrictions be lifted; we celebrated when outdoor gatherings of 500 were announced!
The show was a success and we are so proud of the kids, our organization, our production team and parent volunteers, our town and our state. It truly takes a village of dedicated and caring individuals to make something like this possible.
Now, we look forward to our next venture...FROZEN Jr. in the Park. We hope to see you there!
Thank you fans and supporters for once again voting BCCT
