Community and Meaning
There are so many business reasons to support the Buskirk-Chumley Theater Presents Season. It’s a smart investment of your marketing dollars. The success of the events brings success to the entire Bloomington business community through the additional spending generated by the events and attendees. The events bring visitors to Bloomington, many for overnight stays, which further increases that spending.
However, what we REALLY do at the BCT is create opportunities that give meaning to our lives. We bring you music and stories. We give you a place to create your own. Maybe your first date with your future husband involved a movie at “the old Indiana,” or you remember being turned loose with your childhood friends there for an afternoon of popcorn, candy, and matinees. Perhaps the Arlo Guthrie concert reminded you how important it is to live the dreams you had as a teenager. Was there anything at all like the moment when your son explained why Andrew Bird’s lyrics really spoke to him? Or when your daughter started practicing the piano again because the Regina Spektor show “blew her mind”? Maybe you had a dinner conversation with your neighbors, who wanted to tell you how last year’s “Wilderness Plots” performance truly deepened their understanding and sense of closeness to Indiana.
The business part simply makes sense. The support you give makes this place “home."
