Our History

Your Blue Ridge Community Theater was founded in 2000 as a 501c3 Not For Profit organization. Originally called the Gateway Mountain Players, your Blue Ridge Community Theater is now known locally as BRCT. BRCT had its humble beginning as a "gypsy theater" that performed anywhere there was space. Whether it was in the public school "cafetoriums" (cafeteria/auditorium), open air parks or any empty building, these adventurous volunteers continuously brought theater to appreciative audiences.

Not having a permanent "home", posed a number challenges for the audience, the actors, and the volunteers. Well, being creative people by nature, the directors and other volunteers devised interesting, innovative and unusual ways to bring quality theater to the region. Somehow and someway, these dedicated volunteers not only made due, they built a strong foundation that continuously focused on both the art and the business of theater.

By 2003, your Blue Ridge Community Theater had its own rented space. Still continuing to grow and increase the quality and the number of shows, the actors, board members, stakeholders and other volunteers made strategic plans and dreamed of one day owning its own home.

They had a great play called the school of rock and it did rock. The playhouse is nice and very small which brings you up close and personal with the actors. Everyone there was very helpful and they had nice pamphlets looked very legit.

Very nice intimate theater setting. All seat have a good view of the stage, lighting is good. Concession stands offer alcohol and popcorn as well as sodas. We had a great time especially when the audience is encouraged to join in. Only beef is parking is aweful. Had to park off site at an overflow lot cold and rainy out. Other than that it's a great place to see a show.
