WELCOME TO THE 85th BCT SEASON!
The cast for our recent fall show, MAKING GOD LAUGH included:
Doris Tropp as Ruth
Brad Thorp as Bill
Aaron Crary as Richard
Bernice White as Maddie
Conner Martin as Thomas
Patricia Moran Collins directed the show.
Les Blumreich was stage manager.
Our casts love the fact that we are able to build the set for the fall show during the summer, allowing them to rehearse in the space from day one. We actually completed the set for this show in early July!
Les Blumreich and Mary Easland hard at work on the set.
Dawn Kabor has re-joined our backstage crew after a number of years.
Les Blumreich and Donna Balsley are painting the crown molding (which is actually a piece of Styrofoam and some clothesline rope).
A peek behind the basement door, the front closet, and the front door. We LOVE adding details that make a set look more like a real home.
We are always happy to receive cookie donations for our intermissions. Contact Pat Hoye at 608-362-6879 if you are willing to bake for us.

WANT A BCT SHIRT?
Several audience members have commented on the Beloit Civic Theatre polo shirts that you see being worn by board members in the lobby. If you want to own your very own BCT polo, they are available at Paragon Screen Printing at 1545 Prairie Avenue in Beloit. Just stop in and Paula will be glad to assist you. Prices range from $21 to $26 depending on style and size.
HAVE AN OLD VIOLIN IN THE ATTIC?
P.A.P.A.S. (Parent Advocates for the Performing Arts in Our Schools) is beginning a campaign to assist the school district's music department. We are particularly looking for used string instruments, but also will be able to accept band instruments. Because of school budget cuts, every year there are students who are turned away from participation on the orchestra because they cannot afford to rent or buy an instrument. The P.A.P.A.S. Board of Directors is asking the community to consider donating instruments for this purpose. Since P.A.P.A.S. is a 501(c) 3 charitable non-profit corporation, you would receive a letter acknowledging your contribution for tax purposes. If you have questions, or an instrument you are willing to part with, please call Loren Sass, the P.A.P.A.S. treasurer, at 608-365-0235 or email him at email@example.com
