Program Description

Annual Drama Production
The Drama Department produces plays each quarter for credit. Intimate musicals, dramas and comedies are produced in the Stop Gap Studio Theater, with open auditions, and taken for credit as Drama 280/281 (Studio Theatre) or 284/285 (Musical Theatre Performance.) Recent productions include Celebration, A Little Night Music, Dog Sees God, Fuente Ovejuna, Lonely Planet, Urinetown the Musical, The Real Inspector Hound, and Midsummer Night Dream’n. Auditions are open to all BC students.

Each winter, the Drama Department produces a large mainstage production in the Carlson Theater. Recent productions have included The Three Musketeers, Noises Off, The Music Man, The Importance of Being Ernest, The Rocky Horror Show, The Philadelphia Story and Six Degrees of Separation. Auditions are open to the campus community. Students earn credit for acting in this production as well as participating in a seminar specifically designed to add to the performer’s experience.

The BC Drama Department is very active in the NW Drama Conference and the Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival which offer opportunities for students of all levels and in all theatrical fields. Acting, design, tech, musical theatre and literature classes are also offered, and students may earn credit for offstage participation, including construction and backstage work for the productions.
