OUR STORY

Creating the Magic since 1995

Byron Civic Theatre was organized in 1995 by a group of individuals interested in and committed to bringing live quality stage entertainment to Byron and the surrounding area.  This fast-growing organization produces four shows per year as well as outreach activities in the community.  BCT has over 500 members and contributors who provide financial support to the theatre.  BCT is a not-for-profit community organization governed by a Board of Directors.  This all-volunteer theatre is now celebrating its Twenty-second season of producing a variety of plays and musicals at the Byron Middle School Theater.

OUR BEGINNING

How it all started

In May of 1995, representatives from The Pec Playhouse approached Byron High School about using the Sunderman Theatre to produce their summer production while their theatre was under renovation.  After contacting then Assistant Superintendent, David Zumdahl, he put them in touch with Dan and Julie Danielowski.  At the first meeting, a production plan was formulated to present to the Byron Park District.  Mike Baumer joined the Byron group at subsequent meetings and the joint production of ANNIE GET YOUR GUN was performed in August of 1995.  Pec Playhouse provided the impetus for Byron to begin their own Community Theatre.

After the Sunday production of ANNIE GET YOUR GUN, a community meeting was held to determine the interest and direction of the new theatre.  Over 100 people attended that meeting.  From that meeting, twelve individuals expressed an interest in forming the group that would organize what is now known as

Byron Civic Theatre.

This organization is strong today due to the work of the following individuals who spent countless hours developing the organizational structure of BCT.  Those Founding Board Members are Margie Bartscher, Mike Baumer, Audrey Blobaum, Dan Danielowski, Julie Danielowski, Barb McGuire, Tim McGuire, Kris Tarbert, Penny Wiegert, David Zumdahl and facilitator, Randy Jurasek.
