BATTLE CREEK JUNIOR THEATRE NAMES DIRECTOR FOR FALL PRODUCTION

Press Release: August 24, 2013

Contact: Boardbattlecreekjuniortheatre.com

BATTLE CREEK JUNIOR THEATRE NAMES DIRECTOR FOR FALL PRODUCTION

The Battle Creek Junior Theatre is pleased to introduce Deanna Joy Flora as the Artistic Director for its fall production “Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs”. Deanna ,a Battle Creek resident has been active in theater for many years. Her love of theater started as a senior at Muskegon High School. Throughout High School and College, Deanna performed ,directed and wrote student plays. At Muskegon Community College she was the recipient of the “Outstanding Overall Theater Student Award”. She has also acted in both the Grand Haven and Muskegon Civic Theatres. Since living in Battle Creek ,Deanna has been directing the Westlake Players and founded the LMS MASQUE group at Lakeview Middle School. We welcome Deanna to Battle Creek Junior Theatre. Deanna in her own words: “My vision as the Artistic Director of “Snow White” with the BCJT would be to offer an extension of what I believe are the same fundamental theater traditions that BCJT appears to stand for. I am a firm believer that the youth in this area need to have an opportunity to utilize a creative outlet and participate in an experience that will aid in building self confidence, teach a sense of discipline, and offer an opportunity for them to learn the art of expressing themselves, but most importantly to have fun, be themselves and gain exposure and firsthand experience in the theater.”

The Battle Creek Junior Theatre is continuing the legacy stated by Mary Mc Quiston. For over 65 years BCJT has brought all facets of theater arts to the children of the community.

Coming this summer

Battle Creek Junior Theatre is excited to announce our Spotlights! Summer Performance Workshop cast will be performing an original musical parody….

zabinga

Zabinga: Music through the Wormhole, a Musical Parody

An original spoof looking at American music through the decades from the 50′s – 80′s, starring characters inspired by TV’s The Big Bang Theory. One Thursday night, while debating the cultural relevance of music through the decades over Chinese food, disaster ensues propelling our heroes backward in time where they experience a number of songs first-hand as they find their way back home. Songs, dances, and costumes of the periods will be featured as workshop participants learn new theater skills and hone existing ones.
Public performances:
Friday, July 26th @ 7pm First United Methodist Church (Tickets $3)
Saturday, July 27th @ 10am Leilapalooza Music Festival

It’s not too late to register. You can find more information and registration forms on our event page at https://www.facebook.com/events/135329479995769/
