On Saturday, April 23, BCAP celebrated its eighth annual Big Top A Springtime Circus Extravaganza. The variety show, hosted by BCAP’s Atlas program, was held in support of HIV prevention and awareness.
We had a packed house on Saturday, as nearly 200 people came to see Atlas program members and other local performers with vocal, instrumental, comedy, drag, and other theatrical talents! Fourteen acts, 19 performers, 40 volunteers, and a full theater of supporters made for a fun and fantastic evening with a sense of community.
Emcee Miss K-Anne Peppa kept the audience entertained, presented powerful messaging, and helped the evening flow smoothly. All the performers’ unique talents and entertainment made Big Top a true variety show. The crew showed up with a spirited bounce and fun costumes, while taking care of all the behind-the-scenes logistics. Garrett Smith and Kira Gressman were recognized as Atlas Volunteers of the Year for their outstanding contributions to the program. The event’s food drive brought in about 400 pounds of food to support BCAP’s Food Pantries. To everyone who participated in Big Top this year – Atlas thanks you!
