BCT, a non-profit corporation in a small Minnesota rural area of 12,000, provides theater access to the community at large. According to our Mission Statement, BCT provides theater education and opportunity for people to pursue their interests in theater through acting, directing, and stagecraft support activities in productions by and for community members.
Two years ago, BCT purchased a building which has become the headquarters for much of its theater support activities such as rehearsals, set construction and costume and prop storage. Funding is requested to help bring the building up to code through the installation of a fire suppression system and handicapped accessibility requirements. These code upgrades will raise the current occupancy level from 30 to to 200, which will increase opportunities to host performances, recitals, fundraisers, workshops, classes and special events for the community.
