Other ways to support BSC
- Special Events
BSC’s special events are a key part of our fundraising efforts. The BSC Annual Gala, which kicks off the summer season, coincides with the first Mainstage production in June. This is BSC’s largest and most high profile fundraiser of the year and includes a musical performance, cocktail party, dinner, dancing and a silent auction. In addition to the June Gala, each spring BSC holds a Playwright Mentoring Project benefit to honor the students who have successfully completed the program that year.
- Education Scholarship Fund
BSC provides scholarships to students-in-need to attend BSC’s summer KidsAct! program. $500 sends a child to camp for three weeks, and gives him/her an opportunity to learn collaborative skills as well as acting, movement, dance, stage combat and voice.
If you have any questions or would like to make a donation by phone, please call the BSC Development Office at 413-997-6110 or email email@example.com.
