The circus is coming and everyone's invited...again! The BCSPA had such a great turnout for Frozen on Ice and The Harlem Globetrotters at the Barclay's Center, The Sound of Music and the Nutcracker at BAM. It has been awesome connecting with so many families across the divisions, and we couldn't resist another opportunity to do so.  So with that in mind, the PA is rounding up another group for...


What: The Circus


Where: Barclays Center. PA President Charlie Pigott will be wearing a BC baseball cap.


When: Saturday at 3pm. February 21st


Who: All BC community members are welcome.  (Parents/caregivers must be present to chaperone minors.)


Cost: $20 per ticket.


RSVP: Email everyonesinvitedBCPA@gmail.com ASAP with the number of tickets required as all of our events have exceeded our expectations.


We can't wait to see you there!

The Berkeley Carroll Green Coalition and the BC Film Series present:
The Emmy Award winning
The Years of Living Dangerously: The Preacher's Daughter 
Staring Ian Sommerhalder
Produced by BC parent Jesse Sweet
Tuesday, January 20th at 7pm 
The Performance Space at 181 Lincoln Place

Drinks and snacks served.

A discussion with the filmmaker AND the preacher's daughter will follow the one hour film.

The father: a megachurch preacher who doesn't believe in climate change. The daughter: an activist trying to shut down the local coal-fired power plant. The daughter's hope: to eventually convince her father that global warming is happening, and even, just possibly, see if he'll make it the topic of his next sermon.

In Preacher's Daughter, Correspondent Ian Somerhalder listens in on both sides of the evangelical community's debate over climate change.

Immediately following the one hour film Jesse Sweet and Anna Jane, the preacher's daughter, will discuss the filming process, her experiences as an activist, and the intersection of religion and environmentalism.
