A Bit About BSEAODS!
We are a friendly diverse society. We have members ranging from age 8 to 80 and no previous experience is necessary. We have performed many genres of shows ranging from G&S to Legally Blonde. We perform two shows a year, one in the Spring and one in the Autumn, at the Theatre Royal in Bury St Edmunds. We also occasionally do a concert or play inbetween.
We hold auditions for each show and these are in front of a panel made up of the Musical director, director, Chorographer, a member of the committee and an independent member of the society. Anyone in the society can ask to be on the panel.
Shows are normally selected every other year by a separate committee and then voted for by our members. Sometimes selections change as new and exciting opportunities arise. These have ranged from winning a bid from a London company to produce a brand new musical to being one of the few societies in the country to get the rights to newly available shows.
Even though we are a charity ourselves, we often support other charities and our members can be seen singing at various events around the town.
We have various social events in the year from a summer garden party, cheese and wine evening to a full black tie ball or just a karaoke evening (any excuse to sing!!).
Fancy having fun? Contact us and come along ...we won’t bite!!
