Comedy Night at BCT
Featuring Jeremy Nunes- As seen on Dry Bar and Amazon Prime

Often referred to as “Comedy’s next great soryteller”, Jeremy Nunes’ unique show has been in demand for over 20 years.  He draws rave reviews for his clever observations, unique story-telling style and ability to improvise with his audience.

After winning $200 in a local comedy contest, Jeremy left his glamorous life in rural southern Illinois to ply his craft in Chicago where he mastered his signature “front-porch comedy” at the world-famous Second City.

Now, he joins us for three performances only, August 5th and 6th.  Come on out for a family-oriented and fun-filled show that will leave you laughing.  Individual tickets are $25 each but can purchased as part of a Summer of Entertainment subscription for just $139.  (7 shows including The Tunesmith prior to June 25th.  6 shows prior to July 9th.)

Marge Does Hannibal
A light-hearted look at what makes Hannibal, well, Hannibal!

St. Louis actor and comedienne Linda Spall once again brings her alter ego Marjoram Fennell to our stage in a brand-new event.  Last seen in Holidays with Marge, this time, our loveable character tackles what it’s like to visit Hannibal.  The attractions, the shops, the geography and the people are all subject to Marge’s naiive expertise as a travel host.  Along wih her musical companion Randy Williams (not to be confused with Andy Williams) this will be a lyrical and hilarious exploration of our beloved city.

It’s hard to describe a Marge show- part comedy, part information, part music and a whole lot of audience participation.  This show will delight visitors and residents alike.

Individual tickets $25 each or can be purchased as part of a Summer of Entertainment subscription- just $139.  (7 shows including The Tunesmith if purchased prior to June 25th.  6 shows if purchased prior to July 9th.

Jason Hudy Show
Mystery. Intrigue. Comedy. Bewilderment.

Last summer, we closed our season with this remarkable show that just kept getting more popular as it went on.  Unfortunately, we weren’t able to extend his run due to Jason’s other commitments.  So we did the next best thing and brought him back for another 3 shows this summer.

Jason has performed over 8,000 shows around the world including 26 months headlining at The Magic of Saipan and on Disney cruises and late-night television.  We were incredibly fortunate to book him last year and even more so this year as his calendar is filling up post-CoVid.  But Jason loves Hannibal audiences and agreed to fit us in for this one last run- thak you Jason!

If you missed this show last summer, don’t miss it now.  And if you saw it, we know you want to come back and watch it again.  Individual tickets are $25 but this can be purchased as part of a Summer of Entertainment subscription for just $139.  (7 shows including The Tunesmith if purchased prior to June 25th.  6 shows if purchased prior to July 9th).  

Bonus:  For this show only, we are offering a limited number of children’s tickets (16 and under) for just $10 each.  These will sell out fast, book them immediately to avoid disappointment.
