Always pleased when we visit BCP. Productions are well done. We also have given tickets as gifts (and the recipients loved) Parking is limited. Get there early, or park elsewhere in the town and plan to walk a bit. Definitely recommend this theater.

There was a restroom at the entrance that was busy, I didn’t go there but the one inside at the back of the theater had a handicap restroom.
