Our 2018 - 2019 Season


RumorsRUMORS

BY NEIL SIMON
DIRECTED BY DR. ANNA FILIPPO
OCTOBER 3 - 7, 2018
WEDNESDAY - SATURDAY AT 7:30PM, SUNDAY AT 2PM
Four couples show up to celebrate the mayor’s anniversary, only to find that he has accidentally shot himself in the ear and his wife is nowhere to be found. Blame, lies, and rumors fly as each of them attempt to conceal what they know about the situation and speculate how it happened in the first place. With eccentric characters, unfortunate circumstances, and a multitude of miscommunication, Rumors is hailed as one of Neil Simon’s greatest comedies. Dr. Anna Filippo says that this is "A fantastic opportunity for Theatre students to do a farce, written by America's best-known comic playwright."
*Includes mature language

BY LAUREN GUNDERSON
DIRECTED BY DAVID ALFORD
NOVEMBER 14 - 18, 2018
WEDNESDAY - SATURDAY AT 7:30PM,  SUNDAY AT 2PM

While many male astronomers receive credit for their discoveries, little is heard of the women who pioneered the way before them. Silent Sky tells the real life story of early twentieth-century astronomer Henrietta Leavitt and her contributions to science, as she balances dealing with health complications, familial obligations, and social limitations. A play dedicated to uncovering the history of the stars and restoring the voices that were once lost. Dr. Anna Filippo says “Lauren Gunderson is currently the most produced playwright in the country; her important work about women's contributions to understanding our universe makes this a compelling challenge for the large female talent pool at Berry.”

BY BENJ PAESEK, PETER DUCHAN, AND JUSTIN PAUL
DIRECTED BY DR. ANNA FILIPPO AND DAVID ALFORD
APRIL 9 - 14, 2019
TUESDAY- SATURDAY AT 7:30PM, SUNDAY AT 2PM
As Eddie Birdlace and his fellow marines celebrate their final moments together before departing for war, they participate in a dogfight, a cruel game where they each bet money on who can bring the ugliest date to a party. Eddie sets his gaze on Rose, a local waitress who has never been on a date in her life, and they embark on a wild night that eventually ends in heartbreak. Unexpected and misguided, Dogfight is a story about the cruelty of human nature, finding forgiveness, and starting over. “BCTC looks forward to collaborating with Music and Dance students to bring this show to Rome. From part of the creative team that brought us Dear Evan HansenDogfight also explores the repercussions of social irresponsibility--a topic that is as important now as ever.“ says Dr. Filippo.
