Bay City Players presents five diverse, carefully selected and engaging theatre experiences each season, including musicals and plays. We also offer programs that provide youth and seniors opportunities to expand their knowledge in the theatre and expand their ability as actors, directors and stage crew.
A summer production allows us to introduce shows more current and edgy often dealing with humanity in today’s culture.
Materials for musicals are rented and a refundable $25 deposit is required. It will be collected when scripts are distributed. Your deposit will be returned to you when scripts are returned in good condition.

Considered by many to be the funniest musical ever written, FORUM has no shame in what it will do for a laugh—sight gags, running jokes, vaudeville, slapstick, impossible disguises—you name it. It all takes place in ancient Rome when a young man falls in love with the girl-for-sale next door. His servant steps in to help him out, but this servant holds back nothing. Whatever it takes, he will make his young master happy. The plot is easy to follow but too hard to explain here. Just believe us—FORUM will delight you with its charming songs, flirty dances, hilarious characters, and its innocence. Recommended for ages: 12 and up.
