One of the richest treasures BCC Theatre can boast of is our multitalented
and devoted designers who light and dress, build and compose our
Shawn Elliott's lighting designs have illuminated
equally the stage itself and our students' understanding with his
sharp eye and inner sense of coloring. He has brought many students
along to careers in technical theatre through patient nurturing during
hands-on work with each design and building problem. Under Shawn's
guidance our students build stages, focus lights and create new designs
in the areas of scenery and lighting.
Cynthia Brenner has spent many years costuming and designing makeup
for the diverse worlds we bring to our stage. She has nurtured and
taught many students, who come to us without experience, to sew, to
see, to draw and to render costumes that dress and create odd assortment
of characters stalking our boards.
David Mello's masks have brought strong emotions to
our audience with the bold expressive quality of mytho-logical and
epic characters. He has enabled our students to create the power of
dreams and light up our imaginations with the blaze of fantasy and
the power of myth. We are now pleased to add the artistry of Vinny
Lovegrove, director of Miracle Fish Puppet Theatre to our productions.
Anne Watson Born has brought the sounds - both original with her own
compositions, and traditional music, in everything from sound scrapes
to lobby music. Her versatility includes conducting and music direction,
composition and an expansive vocabulary of sound and music. Our students
learn singing, instrumental skills, and sound awareness as they strengthen
confidence in this dimension of theatre.
These designers, Shawn G. Elliott, Cynthia Brenner, David Mello, Vinny
Lovegrove and Anne Watson Born, have enriched our theatre and have
selflessly nurtured our students with their deep and wide ranging talents.
In this combination, this collaboration, that makes our theatre strong
