The BE T&CP was incorporated as a non-profit community theater in 1977. Its 12-member board operates with a President (Brian Roverud), Secretary (Lill Robinson), and Treasurer (Laurie Christensen). The board is always on the lookout for “new blood” to become involved. In addition to the officers the following currently serve on the Board of Directors: Mike Ellingsen, Brice Hanson, Barb Pearson, Norma Schmitt, Kim Shaffer, DeAnna Shaikoski, Nancy Steinke, Peter Steinke, and Dan “Boomer” Welder.
BE T&CP is mostly self-sufficient and operates on a small budget compared to the hours of work that go into the productions. The board takes a very active role in the productions. Show directors are paid and nominal stipends are given to those who work on publicity, set construction, costuming, sound and lighting. Volunteer efforts by the board, cast members, and community are the heart of the organization.
