Bay City Players Presents Virtually:

"Chasing Clouds": An Online Event - Jun 9

As we continue staying home and staying safe, we are happy to be able to bring you another installment in the #MakeArtVirtual series. This week our home-bound actors will be presenting an original play by Michael Alan Herman  “Chasing Clouds”. As always, these events are free to all, but donations are appreciated and can be made at

Earl and Joanne have been running their farm for many a year, but they don’t raise crops or livestock; they farm the very clouds themselves, for their precious silver linings. Sadly, the farm is on its last leg, and after a machinery accident, so is Earl. Joanne has an idea about how to move forward, with the help of their next-door neighbor, but Earl isn’t going to like it. Joanne finds herself torn between her loyalty to the man she loves and the truth that’s on the horizon.
