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.

Although we cannot predict what the future may bring, we are excited to announce open auditions for “A CHRISTMAS CAROL: A LIVE RADIO PLAY” by Kevin Connors and Joe Landry, Directed by Mike Wisniewski.
The Charles Dickens holiday classic comes to life as a live radio broadcast, complete with vintage commercials for fruitcake (extra-fancy), and the magic of live sound effects and musical underscoring. A handful of actors bring dozens of characters to the stage, as the familiar story unfolds: Three ghosts take Ebenezer Scrooge on a thrilling journey to teach him the true meaning of Christmas. This charming take on a family favorite will leave no one saying “Bah Humbug!”
This show will be presented as a fully realized staged production, professionally recorded and streamed on Broadway On Demand. Should the Governor’s orders change throughout the rehearsal process, we will reevaluate if limited live audiences will be allowed as well.
Auditions will take place via Zoom on October 4 and 5 beginning promptly at 6 PM, so please make sure your internet connection is reliable at that time and join the waiting room ahead of time. Callbacks will be held in person by appointment at Bay City Players on October 6. Those auditioning will be asked to sing the first 16 measures of the classic Christmas carol “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen,” which will be included in the packet.
