The Bardstown Community Theatre started in 1982 as a workhouse for young actors by Marcia Hume. We incorporated and changed our name to BCT in 1984. The first years were very difficult because we had very little money with which to produce plays. Some of our first efforts were hardly works of art. We persevered and gradually over the years we got better and more people started to attend our productions. We now have our own storage building, very well stocked with set, costumes, props and all the other things it takes to make a good play.In 1987, Nelson County built a community center and they asked for our input on building a stage. We have produced most of our plays at that location since. Sometimes we perform plays at local school auditoriums or area churches.
