The Bishop Chatard Theatre Booster Club

The mission of the BCHS Theatre Booster Club is to provide and organize faith-filled parental, alumni and friend support and promotion of the BCHS theatre program and its teachers, directors and students.

Meetings

Meetings are called as needed and posted online as well as emailed to our list of interested parents. Any interested parent can be added to the Theatre Email blasts. Simply email the current president, Sheila Gramling at sheilagramling@aol.com to be added to the list.
