Spawned by the efforts of Buckhannon-Upshur High School students and the high school’s vocal music teacher and choir director James Knorr, BCT took to the stage for the first time in 1971 with the production that began as an effort to continue to have musical theater shows during the summer months in addition to the musical shows that were produced at the high school each spring. The effort was successful, as people of all ages and backgrounds became actors, singers, dancers, directors, stagehands and costumers in order to put together a “Broadway-style” show for the community. In 1972, Buckhannon Community Theatre was chartered as a non-profit organization, developed and adopted organizational by-laws and held its first election of officers, including executive board members, from its general membership. It has since expanded from summer-only productions to producing shows throughout the year. This year, BCT celebrates 51 years of quality live theater productions.
