2022/23 Season Announcement

September 17th - June 30th


RAGTIME: The Musical
Music by Stephen Flaherty
Lyrics by Lynn Ahrens
Book by Terrence McNally
Directed by Larry Landsman
Sept 17 - Oct 15, 2022

A compelling epic musical capturing the American “melting pot” experience at the turn of the 20th century, Ragtime tracks three diverse families in pursuit of the American dream as they confront the contradictions inherent in American reality: experiences of wealth and poverty, freedom and prejudice, hope and despair. Nominated for 13 Tony Awards, “The show contains some of the most breathtaking musical theater writing of the last 25 years. Trust me, musical theater lovers: The show, pulled off with polish and panache, is one you won’t want to miss!” (LA TIMES)

Based on the Screenplay by Jonathan Lynn; Written by Sandy Rustin
Directed by Bill Kaufman
Oct 29 - Nov 19, 2022

Based on the 1985 movie, all of your favorite characters are brought to life, including Professor Plum, Miss Scarlet, Colonel Mustard and more! “This game is a madcap, 90-minute puzzle that's mostly silly and engagingly fun.  Chockfull of physical comedy, sight gags, and dorky goodness, this board game come to life is a wonderful distraction from 21st century realities.” (NEW JERSEY STAGE)

The Story Of The Velveteen Rabbit
Based on the book by Margery Williams
Adapted by Anita Larsen; Music & Lyrics by Bill Francoeur
Directed by Bunny Mateosian 
Dec 3 - Dec 18, 2022

The entire family will enjoy this classic story about how a toy rabbit learns the true meaning of being real. In this enchanting musical, based on the children’s book by Margery Williams, the Velveteen Rabbit earns the love of a young person and learns about the joys and pains of love, loss, and self-esteem. 

The Play That Goes Wrong
Written by Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer & Henry Shields
Directed by Ray Yucis 
Feb 18 - Mar 11, 2023

The thespian troupe of Cornley University is putting on a production of ‘The Murder at Haversham Manor’, but in this ‘play-within-a-play’ you can just sit back and bust a gut at all of the misplaced props, forgotten lines, banged heads, missed cues, pratfalls, door slams, broken fingers and mispronounced words as the show literally falls apart at the seams. Winner of the 2015 Olivier Award for Best New Comedy, you will truly enjoy “one of the most laugh-filled works that has ever jollied a stage” (NY Stage Review).

Written by Robert O'Hara
Directed by Peter Colletto
Mar 25 - Apr 22, 2023

One of the most creative and inventive plots ever seen on the BCP stage, this dark family satire about addiction, intervention and recovery works around the edges of class, race and fame. But trust us, it’s not what you think it is! Written for an adult audience, this is a “sly and cynical play (that) also happens to be hilarious.” (TheaterMania).

It Shoulda Been You
Music by Barbara Anselmi
Book & Lyrics by Brian Hargrove
Directed by Dottie Fisher
May 6 - Jun 4, 2023

“A delightfully giddy, goofy musical comedy!” (USA TODAY) follows the comings-and-goings of two crazy families on the morning of the impending nuptials between the Jewish Rebecca and the Catholic Brian. Tensions rise to the fore in this fast-paced farce featuring contemporary music that will appeal to anyone who has been through wedding plans. “…it practically redefines the term “guilty pleasure”.” (HOLLYWOOD REPORTER)


The Realistic Joneses
Written by Will Eno
Directed by Glenn Woertz
Jan 14-15, 2023

It’s a simple premise: Bob Jones and his wife Jennifer meet their new next-door neighbors, John and Pony Jones, and they proceed to discuss their lives. "But don’t come to the play expecting tidy resolutions, clearly drawn narrative arcs or familiarly typed characters. 'The Realistic Joneses' progresses in a series of short scenes that have the shape and rhythms of sketches on 'Saturday Night Live' rather than those of a traditional play…but cut to the heart of how we muddle through the worst life can bring." (NY TIMES)

From Screen To Stage
Conceived and Directed by Jacqueline Poquette
