Branch County Community Theater Announces Pickering Award for playwriting Excellence Winner

Branch County Community Theatre’s (BCCT) is proud to present this year’s winner of the Robert J. Pickering Award for playwriting Excellence! The  ABC’s of LGBT at the Rainbow Valley B ‘n B was written by Phil Darg, an author of more than two dozen plays and musicals, the composer of more than 300 musical works (some broadcast on MTV and The History Channel) and has performed as a guest artist at 54 Below in New York City.

A conservative Pastor and his insecure wife arrive at a B ‘n B in Vermont in order to take in the “fall colors.” However, an early snowstorm strands them at the inn with its gay owners and lesbian guest couple. Forced together for the weekend, the six openly express their vastly different opinions on LGBT issues while examining their own relationships-leading to humorous confrontations, shifting alliances, and finally, a degree of understanding between all members of the group.

With a cast of six, this touching comedy takes a look at possibilities when we can come together to discuss our differences and arrive at acceptance, love and even friendship.

This subject matter may not be suitable for young audiences.

This production will be presented at the historic Tibbits Opera House at 14 S. Hanchett Street, Coldwater, Michigan on March 5, 6 & 7 at 7:30 p.m. each evening. Tickets are $5 and are available at Tibbits website at or at the door the evening of the performance.
