FRIDAY, SEPT. 27: IMPROV ALL-STARS NIGHT
On Friday, September 27, 2019, at 7:30 P.M. at the University of Dayton Boll Theatre, the University of Dayton's Theatre, Dance, and Performance Technology Department hosted their third annual fundraiser to benefit Brighter Connections Theatre. The show featured UD's On the Fly student improv organization and Brighter Connections Theatre cast members. We all laughed and enjoyed the show!

SUMMER 2019 PERFORMANCE PHOTOS ARE HERE!
The summer Youth and Young Adult performances for students between the ages of 8 and 18 years old were wonderful conclusions for six weeks of learning and creating! Cast members worked together to achieve social, behavioral, and communication goals over the course of the six weeks. BCT, with the University of Dayton Theatre, Dance, and Performance Technology Program, combined theatre elements such as role play and educational best practices to create both an effective and creative learning environment. The session was June 4 through July 14. Performances were July 13 and 14.
