Boise Contemporary Theater (BCT) is the only nonprofit professional theater within 300 miles dedicated to producing challenging new work. BCT’s mission is to inspire our community to examine our perspectives and better understand ourselves, each other, and the world around us by creating thought-provoking stories of the human experience. We own and perform in an intimate 231-seat black box in a historic building in the hub of Boise’s cultural community. BCT hosts or collaborates with local arts organizations, including The Morrison Center for the Performing Arts, Opera Idaho, and Treefort Music Fest. BCT’s education program, A.C.T. at BCT serves over 2,000 students through onsite and outreach Theater Lab programs in which students conceive, write, produce and perform in their own original productions. Our Mainstage season of five productions brings more than 12,000 visitors to BCT. Another 3,000-plus visitors enjoy our season-long reading series and summer reading series, both dedicated to bold new works, as well as a children’s reading series. Our annual BIPOC Playwrights Festival, launched in 2021, furthers our commitment to presenting diverse new voices. Currently celebrating our 25th Anniversary Season, BCT has presented over 90 Mainstage productions, including 23 world premieres such as local artist Jodeen Revere’s The Persistent Guest, and Eric Coble’s The Velocity of Autumn (which continued to Broadway). BCT is proud to be the 22|23 City of Boise Cultural Ambassador!
