About the BTSG

The Bethlehem Theater Support Group (BTSG) is a volunteer organization of students and their families, BCHS faculty and staff, and community members. Working closely with faculty directors, its purpose is to support and promote high-quality musical and dramatic theater productions by the students of Bethlehem Central High School. It seeks to achieve this goal through the voluntary assistance of parents with the wide variety of tasks attendant to staging student theater productions, and with fundraising efforts such as concession sales, soliciting community support, and memberships.
 
Bethlehem Central High School has an extraordinary history of producing consistently high-caliber, entertaining student theater. Each year the BTSG assists with:

Theater Without a Net’s Fall Shakespeare production in Studio 46

Stage 700’s spring musical

Encore Acting Troupe’s drama productions

These combined productions will typically involve 100 to 150 students, or more, in both performing and technical roles. Thousands of audience members enjoy live theatrical productions each year at BCHS. This would not be possible without the active support of the BTSG.

The BTSG is committed to the belief that participation in live theater is one of the broadest and most enriching educational experiences that can be offered to young people, combining the cultural and practical values of literature, music, dance, technical crafts, teamwork, responsibility, mutual respect, self-esteem and confidence. In that spirit, we invite you to join BTSG and share the joy and excitement of live theater by participating in one or more of our committees.
