Our Next Show….
BTC is thrilled to announce our next show, the infectiously funny and loveable ‘Calamity Jane’.
Bringing the Wild West to Bangalow, with its 1950’s swagger and saloon bar ‘Calamity Jane’ is sure to stir some dust! A tribute to the late Doris Day who played the original Calamity in the hit film whose character is one of the most famous female roles of all time. Calamity, a sharp-shooting tomboy of Deadwood City, is surrounded by cowboys in need of a woman touch. Calam' dresses like a man, totes a gun and drives the Deadwood City stagecoach. Well-meaning, but disaster-prone, she tries to help the local saloon proprietor out of a jam by promising to fetch a music-hall star from Chicago. A hilarious comedy, it nevertheless has many tender moments and some very famous numbers, including "Secret Love", "Black Hills Of Dakota, "Deadwood Stage" and "Windy City".
Calamity Jane, firing into Bangalow in October, 2019!

“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.
