Bay City Players Celebrate 100 Years

Last Updated by Denyse Shannon on

One local organization in marking 100 years this fall. With the start of its new season the Bay City Players will have logged a century of entertainment. On September 8th and 9th a two day gala event will kick-off the second century at the theater on Columbus Avenue. Kathy Pawloski says shows are the tip of the iceberg when it comes to what goes into a production. 

“So many people come and see a show and they never get back stage, so it’d be great to come and take a little mini-tour, see all the good that’s gone on. It’s going to be a look back and then a look forward at where we’re going because we’re not celebrating being old, we’re celebrating – wow – we’ve hit a hundred and we’re still going strong,” says Pawloski.

Pawloski says dozens of volunteers work hundreds of hours on each production. She hopes the gala will give people a better understanding of the theater. The gala spans two days, but a ribbon cutting will be held on opening night of the new season on September 29th. The first production this year is George Gershwin’s musical “Nice work if you can get it.” Auditions for the holiday production of "A Christmas Story" are set to begin September 11th.

Pawloski says the group not only hosts live theatre but wants to expose all kinds of people to it through a wide variety of shows. She says they also teach thatrical skills to children through summer programs. Tickets for the gala are available at BayCityPlayers.org.
