It is with mixed emotions, that after ten years of creating memories with elementary/middle school students through BCP, 14 years of teaching Drama, and more than 45 productions, Blake Cooper Productions, Inc. has decided to move in a different direction. Effective with the 2016/2017 School Year, BCP will no longer be providing musical theater productions in partnerships with specific elementary or middle schools within the Cobb County School District in before/after school programs.
I have shared this decision with the Assistant Superintendent, Robin Lattizori, and all the impacted principals last month. I wanted to give them sufficient time to acquire new resources for productions for the coming year.
In the future, BCP will be participating with different venues in providing opportunities for the performing arts for children and young adults in our area and surrounding counties during the summer months and outside of the Cobb County School schedule.
I want to thank you for the opportunity to be creative and for your support through the years! It has been a true pleasure watching your children grow on and off the stage. I appreciate you for believing in our efforts to build self-esteem in kids, and for helping keep the ARTS alive in Cobb County.
As I have said before, “Life is not about finding yourself, life is about creating yourself” and BCP will continue to create ourselves as we begin a new chapter of theatre and building our brand. I wish the very best for you and your children and again, thank you for your support. I don't believe in goodbyes so “until we meet again” somewhere up the road!
