If you're like many across this nation that watched the Inauguration of President Biden and Vice-President Harris, you were witness to a beautifully lit field of flags in front of the Washington Memorial.
However, it's possible you didn't know that one of the team members that was part the event was a Community Players scholarship winner - lighting designer, Ben Green. He was the Lighting Director for the "Celebrating America" television event on the night of inauguration as well as the COVID Memorial.
Green has quite an extensive resume that includes several Emmy Awards. What's next for Green? Lighting the half-time show in Tampa during Superbowl LV. MORE INFO
Another former scholarship winner, renowned composer, Peter Boyer, was commissioned to compose a piece "Fanfare for Tomorrow" for the Inauguration. A graduate of Rhode Island College, Boyer also has an extensive resume. MORE INFO
As Community Players continue to celebrate their 100th season, BVTC would like to show our gratitude to them for the tremendous work they do! Never underestimate the role community theaters have in shaping lives or the talent we have here in Rhode Island. We look forward to the return to live theatre here in the Blackstone Valley!!!
