In 1975 "four women sitting around a coffee table" decided that Boone was in desperate need of a performance outlet for the community to showcase its wealth of talent. Those same four women then decided that they would cook egg rolls to sell at the 1975 spring festival in order to raise money to put on a show using performers, designers and technicians from the High Country. And thus, Blue Ridge Community Theatre was born.
Ever since, BRCT has strived to provide an outlet for all community members to have a chance to showcase their talents on stage; be it through performing in a play or musical, painting backdrops or stage managing a production. We believe strongly that community comes before theatre in our name for a reason.
For nearly five decades BRCT has worked with Boone, NC and its surrounding communities to showcase the unique artistic flair that is inherent to the High Country. We hope that YOU will be the next person to work with us to help us continue this legacy.
Blue Ridge Community Theatre encourages people of all races, ethnicities, identities, body types, physical and cognitive abilities to audition. Theatre is for everyone, and BRCT believes in representation and equity for all.
