New Seats

Facebook Seat Campaign-01

Wouldn’t it be great if…

  • The Seats in the BHCAC theatre were more Comfortable?
  • At a higher incline so that everyone had a better view of the stage?
  • Were permanently numbered?
  • Easier to move for tech rehearsals?
  • You could put your name on a seat forever?

Well guess what?

This is all going to be a reality…but we need your help. CCTL, representing StoryBook Theatre and Front Row Centre Players, have a goal to have this new seat and riser system in place for the 2015/2016 season.

HUGE Thank you to the Pathway Church

CCTL would like to give a HUGE THANK YOU TO the Pathway Church

and their volunteer groups from Houston Texas and Austin Texas, along with Cloverdale Paints for donating their time, work and paint supplies to repaint what we refer to as the Parthenon. They also did a major grounds clean-up and repaired the lighting on the building. This project would not have been tackled without them. Thank you so very much.

Message from the BHCA

A Message from the Beddington Heights Community Association regarding the Land Use and Hockey Rink:

“We  have  received  lots  of  questions  on  the  subject  of the building and rink and as a Board wanted to provide residents a high level summary of the past few years:

•    July 1 2010: building at 375 Bermuda Dr NW was turned back to the City of Calgary.

•    July  1  2012:  building  at  375  Bermuda  Dr  NW  leased to  Calgary  Community Theatre  Ltd  with  a  long  term lease  signed  between  BHCA  and  CCTL  for  continued space  for  the  Beddington  Before  and  After  School Care Program.

•    Rink  maintenance  between  2009-2015  very  minimal and  basic  due  to  the  future  of  the  facility  being  unknown.

•    May 2014: request for new lands submitted to the City of Calgary with intent to relocate BHCA amenities.

•    June  2014  to  current:  Beddington  resident  engagement in order to develop usage plan for new site based on community need, interest and support.

•    June  2015:  rigid  board  structure  to  be  removed  from existing rink site due to their state of repair, liability issues,  cost  of  repair  and  continued  uncertainty  of  the length of use at current location

Next steps:
As  a  community  association  we  need  to hear  from  you  to  best  support  our  community.  We are  currently  investigating  options  for  a  small  facility, amenities and programs in the community and require your input. We are aiming to hear from a min. of 15% of  residents  to  build  our  business  plan  for  the  future and  support  our  business  case  for  amenity/  facility developments. Please take a few minutes to complete our  survey at http://fluidsurveys.com/surveys/cns-surveys/beddington/   “

Curiosities

Well the renovation is in full swing, the old walls and stage have come down to make way for the new spaces, but I just wanted to share some curious things that emerged from the woodwork (pun intended)…

This mural of the mountains emerged from behind the screen over the old stage, I’m sure it probably brings back memories for some!:2013-07-03_19-11-29_894

A little present left behind at some point in the past 30 years…

The project is still on time and we’re anticipating completion for September!

 

Phase 2 Project – Main Hall Subdivision

We have submitted grant applications for a project to renovate the main hall of the Beddington Heights Community Arts Centre.  This project will rejuvenate and revamp this space in many ways, expanding and sprucing up the lobby at the same time, and address many of the lifecycle issues in this part of the building.

There will be 2 studio-style rehearsal spaces/multi-use studios on the window side of today’s main hall and a smaller main hall on the other side.  The opportunity means that we can address some of the storage needs and issues that currently plague the building – in particular the needs of the Before and After School Program are high on our list.

Here are some conceptual drawings to show you what these new spaces could look like.  All of this is contingent upon appropriate funding from the city and province.  Also these are only conceptual drawings, construction drawings still need to be prepared which could cause changes to the layout and plans. However the project as shown is 95% within the existing shell of the space, adding new walls and moving some existing ones, so we do not anticipate major deviations from this plan.

If our grants are successful, this project is expected to start July 1st 2013 and to be completed prior to August 31st, ready for the resumption of the Before and After School Program in September.  Both the BASP summer camp program and the StoryBook Theatre summer camp programs will still take place during this time, please contact those groups if you have an y questions or concerns.

Please note that this means that no bookings will be available in the halls for July & August, and that at the completion of this project, there will no longer be a 400+ person hall with full commercial kitchen, but rather a 150-200 person hall with a food prep area.  This will fit well into most of the community purposes that the main hall is used for today.
