Bergen County Players (BCP) opens its doors for its annual theater Open House on Saturday, May 10, 2014. Free and open to the public, this special Spring event runs from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm, with free workshops in various aspects of theater, backstage tours of BCP, information tables, family events, free raffles, an introduction to the new 2014-2015 season, a Showcase of Ruthless! and complimentary food. The Open House will have something for everyone: live performances, demonstrations, kids' activities, master classes, and much more.
Tours leave every hour on the half hour. Theater staff will be on hand throughout the day to answer any questions about Bergen County Players and its upcoming 2014/15 season of entertainment.
The Bergen County Players has grown tremendously from its roots as a small community theater when it was founded in 1932; today, nearly 300 volunteer members, working on and off stage, make possible the nine productions presented each season. The remaining season includes the musical comedy Ruthless! (May 3rd – June 1st, 2014). The remaining Second Stage production includes a live-radio show of My Favorite Wife (June 7th – 8th, 2014).
