BCT just announced it’s upcoming season and it sounds like a fun season for families!
They have two mainstage productions that have the potential to be family friendly depending on the age of your children- Diary of Anne Frank and Clue: the Musical. These productions are typically $15 for adults and $5 for children.
They are also having a few productions targeting children and families through their Young Audiences program. These productions are typically $5.
They are doing Knuffle Bunny again this year. We saw it at least twice when they did it a couple of years ago and it is worth the $5. Be prepared for a lot of dramatic wailing on the part of Trixie, but that’s kind of what she does for the whole book, too.
Another show we are excited about is Charlotte’s Web! We haven’t gotten to see this production as a family and we are all looking forward to it! They are also doing a concert version of Beauty and the Beast. I’m a little disappointed it isn’t a fully staged production because it is one of our absolute favorites, but it makes sense given their space limitations. And since we are all suckers for all things Beauty and the Beast, we will be there with Belles (hee hee) on.
BCT also announced a new program we are excited about. It is called Troupe BCT. Children ages 8 and up will be able to audition to be part of the training intensive program, which will culminate in a public production of Seussical the Musical. Another family favorite! Chicken will be auditioning, but we will be at the show regardless of whether or not she is lucky enough to be selected. I love that BCT is increasing their theater outreach for youth. Yay BCT!
