BCT stages ‘Escanaba in Love’
BYRON, Ill. — Tickets are on sale for Byron Civic Theatre’s (BCT) production of Escanaba in Love. The show opens Jan. 24 with performances continuing Jan. 26-31 and Feb. 1-2. Show times are Friday and Saturday nights at 7:30 p.m., and Sunday matinees at 2 p.m. Visit the BCT website at www.bctmagic.com for more details.
This hilarious prequel to Escanaba in Da Moonlight is set in the Soady deer camp during World War II and outfitted with a whole new cast of Wacky Yoopers. Eighteen-year-old Alber Soady Jr. is celebrating his final hunting season before he becomes a sharpshooter for the U.S. Army when he falls head-over-heels for the legendary Big Betty Balou.
BCT is at 850 N. Colfax, Byron, Ill., and can be reached at (815) 312-3000.
