BCTC Theater Program Finds Their Efforts Working
LEXINGTON, KY (August 10, 2007) The Bluegrass Community amp; Technical Colleges (BCTC) Theater Program recently combined their efforts with the Studio Players to perform Working the Musical. This musical by composer Stephen Schwartz who is best known for his work on Wicked and Godspell proved to be a crowd favorite.
The play takes the everyday life of numerous American workers and creates an anthem to those who keep the country going. Performing along side the Studio Players from BCTC were eleven students, two faculty members, an associate dean and an advisory member.
"This was a wonderful collaboration between BCTC and Studio Players, the oldest and the youngest theatre organizations in the city. Our students, faculty and staff really went above and beyond the call of duty to make for a very enjoyable and satisfying theatrical experience. This was a big production, with 17 cast members, four band members, a large production staff and a great group of community volunteers. The future looks bright for our program," said Tim Davis, Theater Program Coordinator, and Director.
More than 700 theater goers enjoyed the production during the three week run at the Carriage House. The production also enjoyed coverage from several media outlets such as the Lexington Herald Leader, the Georgetown News Graphic, Business Lexington, Ace Weekly, WKYT Channel 27, WUKY 91.3, and WVLK 590.
The BCTC theater program will present its fall production The Night Thoreau Spent in Jail November 15-17, 2007. Collaborating with Lex Arts and the Actors Guild of Lexington the performance will take place at the Downtown Arts Center, 141 East Main Street, Lexington.
