  • The show goes on! TCT returns

    Doug Jockinsen, contributing writer|Aug 14, 2021

    The return to normalcy is a relative term. For the cast and crew of "Nunsense," it simply means being able to step back onto the BeeKay Theatre stage for rehearsals with actual cast members and stagehands nearby. "You don't realize how much you needed it until you get back into it," said Leslie Reynolds, who joins with a very talented cast in Tehachapi Community Theatre's performance of "Nunsense," which runs Sept. 10-Oct. 3. "I'm so happy to sing and dance with someone who is actually in the...

    Doug Jockinsen, contributing writer|Jul 31, 2021

    After the eternity of 17 months without a show on stage, due to the Pandemic, TCT will turn on the marquee and open the doors of its BeeKay Theatre again on Sept. 10!

  • The whos, whats, and hows of Bear Valley Springs

    Doug Jockinsen, Dr.|Jul 22, 2017

    The American author Henry Miller once wrote, “Confusion is a word we have invented for an order which is not understood.” In Bear Valley Springs, as in any community, a certain amount of confusion is to be expected, yet too much is never a good thing. Sir Francis Bacon is attributed with the phrase “Knowledge is Power”. It dates back to 1597, and in 420 years that quote has stood the test of time. So, in an effort to create a more ‘powerful’ Bear Valley Springs (BVS), here are a few tidbits of knowledge that are often sources of confusion i...
