Dear Friends,

Bedford Community Theatre is in the process of building a production team for the coming season. After the overwhelming success of Oliver! in November 2014, we are looking forward to another year of producing quality entertainment while providing a rich theatrical experience for community members of all ages.

We are seeking volunteers who will fill specific roles on the BCT Board for the period of one year and work together to grow BCT as an organization.

If you would be interested in learning about one of the roles listed below, please contact us as soon as possible.  We must have a team in place by April 10th to go forward with a fall show. For some of these positions no prior experience is necessary.
We are happy to provide additional information on the scope of these roles and the likely time commitment and answer any questions you may have. Please email us at bedfordcommunitytheatre@gmail.com with your questions. If you prefer to talk to someone on the phone please leave a phone number and best time to call in your email message.

Please join us!
Teresa Donkin and June O’Neill
