BCS Theatre

MESSAGE FROM OUR DIRECTOR

"Theatre is messy.  It's not black and white.  It brings up gray matter and creates discussion.  It doesn't package everything in a cute little box and provide answers.  It challenges the intellect.  Actors and theatre practitioners are stretched physically, emotionally, and spiritually, which is where we want students at Bearspaw Christian School to be.  Whether it's on stage, in the classroom, alone or in a group, theatre pushes students into a place of vulnerability.  It can be uncomfortable, it can be clear as mud, it can be hard.  As a student pushes through and is willing to be vulnerable, other areas of life cannot help but be affected.  Our aim should not be to create our own sub-cultured theatre world so we can be protected.  Bearspaw Christian School's Theatre Program has the aim to influence society.  We are called to be a light in the darkness, not a light to those who already have it.  Theatre is not a place where we need to run from, but rather a place to engage."

- June Miller, BCS Theatre Director

“No Signs of Intelligent Life” at Bearspaw Christian School

Calgary, Alberta – March 7, 2016 – Bearspaw Christian School (BCS) Secondary Drama presents No Signs of Intelligent Life by Bryan Starchman on March 17-19, 2016 at 7pm each night.  

If you think you’ve suffered too many awkward moments or have been in the dark in conversations, just think how poor, innocent aliens must feel!  Hungry to fit in (a little too hungry at times!) aliens do and say things that humans just aren't allowed to.  Join in the laughter as these extraterrestrials meet all kinds of humans – teenagers, rednecks, survivalists and the most enigmatic tech support nerds.  Will these hapless aliens be able to figure out the daily rituals of dating, gossiping at the water cooler, camping, or even fixing our computers?  At the same time these aliens have the knowledge to increase humanity’s food production, create alternative energies, and achieve world peace.  Are Earthlings the best form of intelligent life to bestow these gifts on?  More important, could Earthlings ultimately help the aliens get home again?!
