BCT presents Pump Boys and Dinettes,” directed by Mike Rousculp (Tipp City).  A Rock ‘n Roll, Country & Blues Musical Revue that tells the story of 4 men and 2 women who work at a gas station/dinette somewhere on Highway 57 between Frog Level and Smyrna, North Carolina.  Across the blacktop from the gas station is a roadside eatery called the “Double Cupp Diner”.  The four guys at the station have been known to do some auto repairs, but only when aided by large quantities of time and beer.  The Cupp sisters celebrate their home cooking with the same zeal they bring to being neighborly with the boys.  This is a musical tribute to life by the roadside.  The cast includes:  Brad Bishop (Centerville), Cherie Cooper-Darragh (Franklin), Stacy Emoff (Oakwood), Michael Rousculp (Tipp City), Lynn Scowden (Dayton), and Roger Watson (Dayton).


Due to unusual circumstances, performances will be two weeks only:  June 27, 28, 29, 30, July 5, 6, 7 at 8:00 pm, two performances on Sunday July 1 and July 8 at 3:00 and 7:00 pm.  Tickets go on sale June 4.  All seats are $15.00 each and can be reserved by calling the Brookville Flower Shop at 937-833-3531 during business hours, Mon-Fri 9 to 5:30 and Sat 9 to 12.

The Money in Uncle Georges’ Suitcase

A Comedy

by Pat Cook

Directed by Terry Fasnacht

Auditions will be held at the theater on July 31 & August 1 at 7:00 pm.


When Uncle George invites his whole family up for a weekend of fun at his rustic cabin, he actually wants to get them together so he can read his will. But, between the bequeathing and his rambling stories, George drops the bomb that somewhere on the property is a suitcase holding over four hundred thousand dollars!  What follows is a hilarious farce of pettiness, slander, and greed.  The relatives end up wrestling each other, falling down the stairs, and getting stuck in the furniture.  “Yep, we’re going to have lots of fun!” says George as he’s seen carrying a shovel out the front door.  But George’s gift is much more important than mere money, even though the relatives don’t see it that way - at first.

Director Terry Fasnacht will be looking for 3 men and 5 women for this comedy:


            Uncle George - about 60+                                 Margaret Blankenship - late 50s

            Mitch Bryant - late 30s                                       Mamie Jo Durant - mid 50s

            Joanne Bryant - late 30s                                    Andrew Shumway - 40s

            Chelsey Bryant - 13+                                        Gloria Shumway - 40s


Auditions will be held at BCT July 31 and Aug 1 at 7:00 p.m.  Performance dates September 6 - 16, 2007

APPLAUSE to all who attended the “Lights and Sounds of Broadway” in 2004.  Monies from that special show were earmarked for updating lighting and sound equipment for the theatre.  John Neeld, our technical director, has almost completed this project - light booth audio monitors, audio playback equipment, show monitor system, house audio system, lighting dimmers, house lighting controls, plus building cabinets in the light booth making it more organized and easier to work equipment.  Thanks for all your hard work.
