Berry College Theatre Company - Theatre worth doing
Play a part in one of the most exciting theatre companies in
the southeast. At Berry College Theatre College
we strive to do theatre worth doing –
it’s our motto! But our theatre students
need your help.
As college students, the funds for attending important
events in the life of a theatre major are limited; but, we at BCTC feel that these events add so
much to the overall college experience – some even leading to paid professional
theatre work. Below are some examples of why our
students need your support:
- Georgia Theatre Conference: This conference is
the stepping stone for summer professional theatre work (from acting to tech
work). There are also many workshops and
competitions that take place.
- Southeastern Theatre Conference: This is the
premier theatre conference in the nation. Professional companies come from around the country to screen actors and
technicians for paid summer theatre positions. The conference features
workshops by working theatre professionals, as well as professors from around
the country. Exposure to these
professionals often leads to job contacts.
- Kennedy Center American College Theatre
Festival: The Kennedy Center (yes, that
Kennedy Center!) founded this festival to promote higher achievement on the
collegiate level. Every show at BCTC is
a participant in this prestigious festival. Workshops and mini playwriting festivals proliferate through the festival.
All of these conferences have fees associated with
them, but without them there is no
chance of getting paid summer work (or the proverbial “foot in the door!”) in
theatres around the nation. Not only do
the students have to pay fees, there are hotels, meals and gas to cover.
This is why we are reaching out to you. There are several
levels of giving, all suited to your theatrical taste. All funds will go to support our students –
all of whom are theatrical activists.
