What people are saying…

“I would be nowhere without BCT’s training, support, and guidance. I am a better actor, and more importantly, a better person, because of you. Joining BCT was the most incredible thing that has ever happened to me, and I could not have asked for a more beautiful family to be a part of.”

Colin Budzyna

“The show was fantastic! Very emotional, I got goosebumps. The actors, the sound engineer, the set were so believable, an amazing effort!!”
