Have you joined us in our latest format? Starting with Kevin Cole Plays Silent Movies in October, Bay City Players is presenting its shows in a streaming format this fall! Our partner in this is Snow Productions, a Saginaw company that was established in 1987 to provide video production for Dow Corning Corporation.
Snow Productions later expanded and worked directly with local advertising agencies to shoot and edit local commercials. In 2002 Snow Productions worked with the Saginaw Spirit providing multi-camera recording and streaming to the Ontario Hockey League; the company has also worked with the Great Lakes Loons.
Company owner Al Snow says, “Working with live performances is not unlike recording a live sporting event because there is no take two. Once the curtain rises we have to perform and make the shots the first time.” He says he has always enjoyed local theater and being able to work with the cast and crew of the Bay City Players is a lot of fun.
Our next streaming shows will be A Christmas Carol: A Live Radio Show December 3-6 and 10-13 and Kevin Cole’s perennially popular Cole in Your Stocking holiday concert December 16-19. These shows, with so much music and live sound effects, will rely on an audio engineer to make sure the sound is recorded properly and the video will enhance the performance to the audience.
“I can’t wait to get started,” says Snow. “I know streaming the shows is not the same as being there for the live performance, but hopefully this pandemic will soon be in our rear view mirror and our community can get back to the things we love.”
Players hopes the same. Until then, we are excited to bring you this new way to enjoy our shows. We hope you will join us either live in the theater or online for our fall shows! Get your tickets now for Kevin Cole Plays Silent Movies!
