Bah Humbug Productions (BHP) was initially established primarily for the purpose of producing an annual presentation of the Charles Dickens classic, A Christmas Carol, that would benefit the Parkland College Theatre program. The firm, formed by Nicholas and Angela Schneider of Mahomet, Illinois, is a privately held Illinois Corporation. BHP now produces an annual holiday play in December at the college and various plays now and then during the summer season. These have included Bleacher Bums and Loser’s Bracket at Mike ’n Molly’s Beer Garden in Champaign. For 2015 BHP is offering the musical, The Fantasticks, in Parkland College’s new Second Stage.
