Theatre at BCC

The Robert Boland Theatre is one of the largest stage houses in western Massachusetts. This comfortable house has a seating capacity of 503, boasting outstanding acoustics and perfect viewing from every seat. The playing area is adaptable for proscenium, thrust or arena staging, and the stage is fully rigged with a 64-foot grid, a 39-line counterweight system, and a computer light board.

The Fine and Performing Arts program’s Theatre Arts con- centration produces three main-stage productions each year; theatre majors and other students participate. Theatre majors may receive credit annually for their work on these presentations in theatre performance; scenic, lighting and costume design; and production work. Recent productions include The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, Avenue Q, Dancing at Lughnasa, and Next to Normal. More than 3,000 people from the community attend performances at the Boland Theatre each academic season.
