The BCP Foundation Mission is to “…sponsor, produce and promote artistic events to enhance appreciation and understanding of the arts and promote a cohesive sense of community.”
Here you will find up to date communication regarding current and future productions as well as detailed information about our Events Center and how you can use it for your own special events, meetings, and parties.
A message from BCP's President
I have the pleasure of sitting in my home office and watching a flock of baby chickens cavorting in the yard outside. Every day as they grow they try unsuccessfully, flapping their little wings and jumping, to reach the bench that would give them easy access to their nest. Suddenly a few days ago, one of them managed, clutching and flapping, to hold on and lift herself onto the bench. Within hours, all of the baby chickens were happily jumping up and down from the bench as if they had been doing it for years.
So it is with the growth of communities like BCP. This year the brilliant artistic direction of Jim Hatch lifted the quality of our stage productions and the performances of mostly neophyte actors and actresses, people just like you and me, to unimaginably high levels. Now the arrival of Paul and Hope Morgan has shown all of us that BCP *can* make the jump to the next level as a community theater organization, which has catalyzed a torrent of creativity and new ideas for improving our BCP in a multitude of ways.
Everyone involved with BCP is inspired and optimistic about building our collective future. Many of you reading this have been involved in BCP in the past. To all of you and to all the rest, who have never had the pleasure of participating in the community enterprise that is BCP, I urge you to come on down and stick your toe in the water - no big commitments, just try it out - my guess is that you will discover that the water is fine and BCP will simply become a happy part of your life, as it has become for me and so many others.
And the BCP community is much more than just theater - the wonderfully successful Tuesday market it about to get a major upgrade - we are dreaming about a full-time BCP coffee lounge, better promotion for clubs and groups using the facilities, upgraded Tuesday Talks and much more. But BCP is truly a community effort. As the old adage goes, "Many hands make light work."
On Friday, November 22, we invite you to an open house reception at the BCP Theater to get acquainted, or re-acquainted with the New BCP and the team of people just like you, who make it work. You will learn what is in store and how you might enrich your own life by contributing to this wonderful community of volunteers.
I can tell you from personal experience that once you start doing something - *anything* - at BCP, even if it's only putting ice cubes in plastic cups, one thing will lead to another and soon you will be meeting new friends, learning new skills, thinking in new ways and generally feeling young again. You might amaze yourself by running the lighting board for a play, or acting, or even as some have done, directing your own production. Many have traveled this path before, many are on the path now and you are coridally invited to join them.
This is my first communication with you as president, but it will not be the last. If you have questions, ideas or even concerns, my email door is open: firstname.lastname@example.org.
