Bells were ringing at the theatre in February. Wedding bells that is! ALWAYS A BRIDESMAID kept audiences laughing with full houses throughout it’s two week run. I’d like to welcome Nancy Laudeman and Shelley Spate as new actors to BCP! What a great way to RING in the new year!
February also brought with it auditions for THE GREAT AMERICAN TRAILER PARK MUSICAL. So much talent! I’m thrilled to be a part of this hilarious romp through “Armadillo Acres” as the Producer of this show. What’s a producer? A producer can have different roles depending on the theatre and the production. At BCP, my role is to be the manager of the production and support the artistic team for the show. I’m here to manage the budget, help find resources such as staff members, crew, or materials needed. I am the liaison between the show staff and board of directors as well. I will also work with the marketing chair and box office to make sure everyone has what they need to produce a successful show. My mantra is “what can I do to help set you up for success?” Sound like a lot of work ? It can be, but it’s also VERY rewarding. And more importantly, we have a wonderful core of volunteers. Producers do need to be a member of BCP. Interested in learning more? Check out our membership page!
What kind of skills do you need to be a producer? You need to be organized, detailed oriented, be a good record keeper (budgets, receipts, contacts, schedules, etc.), good at problem solving, and most importantly a strong communicator. I might add another personal quality I think a producer needs to have, a positive attitude. Sound like something you might want to try? We’d gladly train you or pair you with a current producer to learn the ropes. Producing just might be your TICKET at BCP!
Stay tuned for what we will share with you next month! Here is a sneak peek. ARE YOU BEING SERVED? rehearsals are well underway. Matt Spurlock makes his directorial debut for this production. Click here for more information and to get your ticket soon! This show promises to be a roaring romp with those loveable characters at Grace Brothers Department Store!
Till next month, I hope you have a great month and that I’ll see you at the theatre!
