Welcome to the BCPs official website
We think the BCPs are special. Going for over 40 years, we have an enthusiastic membership from across Kent and East Sussex. We put on at least two excellent productions a years from the base of the tiny village of Blackham, tucked just inside East Sussex. The secret to our success? Our wonderful, inclusive ethos, which offers something for all members and supporters, gelled with an active social calendar.
We aim to give everyone the opportunity to be involved in productions – be it on stage, back stage, front of house, set design, set building, bar, food preparation, programme design, publicity, raffle collection or play promotion and ticket sales.
We perform a wide variety of plays – classics, comedy, farce, sketches, radio plays and new works by local playwrights – there’s something for everyone. We have had teenagers perform with their grandparents. No experience is necessary!
Over the years we have collaborated with other local groups and have performed in festivals. Currently we team up with Penshurst Amateur Dramatic Society (PADS), so most plays are performed in two very different locations and to two rather different audiences, making the sometimes hard work of rehearsals well worth while and very rewarding.
We can never have too many members so if you’d like to give us a go, please get in contact – we would love to hear from you.
