‘Seems a lot of men never saw one such as me. A girl what could keep up, fight and ride and curse with the best of them…’
Hold on to your hat, take a swig of sasparilly, and climb aboard the Deadwood stagecoach for the all shootin’, all dancin’, gender-bending musical comedy Calamity Jane!
Award-winning director Kate Foster’s gritty reinvention of the Hollywood classic, stars Joanne Connor as the tough-talking Calamity and a motley crew of cowboys and cross-dressers with Mick Webb as the swoon-worthy ‘Wild Bill’ Hickock, and Brian Pamphilon as hilarious Francis Fryer.
Feeling peckish? Get into the Calamity spirit and tuck into our pre-show themed dinners and cocktails. Pre-order from a range of mouth-watering dinner and show packages prepared by proud supporters One Green Acre.
“CHICAGO has everything that makes a Broadway musical great: a universal tale of fame, fortune and all that jazz; one show-stopping song after another; and the most astonishing dancing you’ve ever seen!”
Based on the 1926 play of the same name, CHICAGO remains relevant today as a comment on justice, show-business and the concept of the celebrity criminal. Both acerbically satirical and highly entertaining, it glamorises a scandalous time when women were pursuing their dream of enjoying the same freedoms afforded to men only to find that this also meant equality at the hands of the executioner.
BTC’s production of CHICAGO saw sell out crowds and multiple theatre awards. The A&I Hall was buzzing with 1920’s glitz and glamour, some patrons getting well into the spirit! Our fabulous cast held the space with sophistication and appeal, creating the wonder of Fosse with feathers, leather and of course some fishnet stockings!
Our Inaugural Show
'The Drowsy Chaperone'
We had a blast, the audience loved it and so did the critics!
Hailed by New York Magazine as "the perfect Broadway musical", The Drowsy Chaperone, with music and lyrics by Lisa Lambert and Greg Morrison, has won five Tony Awards and is an affectionate parody of the American musical comedies of the jazz era. Set amidst the backdrop of the glitz, glamour and reverie of the 1920s, this production is full to the brim with eccentric 1920s celebrities, producers, aviators and a drowsy chaperone to tie them all together.
The BTC's The Drowsy Chaperone featured a cast of 20, ranging from ages 15 to 69, hailing from Bangalow, Byron Bay, Mullumbimby, Lismore and Lennox Head, and fulfilling our promise to foster local talent.
