The year of 2016 was the premiere of BCAH’s Broomfield Community Players (BCP), a theatrical group for those 16 years and older. Community input indicated a desire for an adult theatrical group. BCP has produced The Importance of Being Earnest, Plaza Suite, and Death Trap.

Just in time to kick off the holiday season, Broomfield Community Players will present "A Gift to Remember" live and in person at the Broomfield Auditorium this Thanksgiving. This family-friendly, heartwarming show is based on the book Can This Be Christmas? by Debbie Macomber and is a different story from the Hallmark movie by the same name.
This gentle, engaging chronical unfolds on Christmas Eve, when, during a snowstorm, a group of strangers are on a train to Boston from Bangor, Maine, after the airport had been shut down due to the weather. Once they reach Boston, many of the passengers hope to make connections to various destinations across the United States in time for Christmas. However, the train develops engine trouble and there are track problems ahead. The passengers are suddenly forced to disembark and take shelter in a small depot in New Hampshire. Understandably disappointed and dispirited, they try to make the best of things with little success at first. Eventually, they begin to bond, despite their circumstances. They even find themselves beginning to accept their fate by finding ways to celebrate the true spirit of Christmas. As the former strangers become collective friends through patience, understanding and humor, they realize the memory of this night will be a gift to remember. Tickets will go on sale in October and details for purchase will be broadly publicized. Keep these dates on your calendar—this is a show you won’t want to miss!
New Playwrights (Postponed)
The Broomfield Community Players, a program of BCAH, will present staged readings of new plays from local writers at the Broomfield Community Center. This is an opportunity for playwrights to hear their work spoken out loud using local actors and a great chance to support emerging artists and never before seen theatre. After the reading, there will be a Q&A with the writer. The audience’s feedback, honest reactions and constructive comments are invaluable to the playwright. Broomfield Community Players (BCP) was formed in the Spring of 2016 as an all-volunteer group to provide opportunities for adults in our community to explore or reignite their interest in the dramatic arts. We work to improve the quality of life in Broomfield and neighboring communities by producing high quality theatre experiences for our audiences and perpetuate live theatre as a viable and important art form.
Broomfield Community Players continues to be a volunteer-based group. It’s free for you to participate and explore your talent whether you are starting out or have several productions to your name. We continue to grow and invite you to keep up with us through social media on our Facebook page.
