We strive on being a group of friendly people who are all enthusiastic and who love amateur musical theatre. We put on two musical events a year with evening performances and matinees on our main shows which gives people lots of opportunities to come view our shows and we always intend to make sure they leave happy and entertained.
We are always so excited to invite new members to come join the society whether it be on stage, backstage or be a part of our enthusiastic Committee, you will be sure to be welcomed with open arms.
The annual membership fee is £30.00 which is tremendous value for a society of our history and background. The annual membership is valid for a full twelve months, for all shows and rehearsals.
There will be a show fee which will vary according to costs for each show. This can be paid by instalment at each rehearsal.
Costumes are usually hired by the Society but to reduce costs you may be asked to help by providing some items yourself. The cast usually provide their own footwear.
Rehearsals for the cast are usually on Mondays and Thursdays each week from 7.30pm – 10.00pm. Occasionally, Sunday rehearsals are required nearer to the performance dates, at the director’s discretion.
Regular attendance at rehearsals is important since we need to work together as a team. Cast members are expected to inform the director as soon as possible if they have to miss a rehearsal.
If you’d like to join the Society and do not wish to perform on stage, there are many other opportunities to make use of your invaluable skills towards the production and during show week – working backstage, front of house, helping with scenery or with props, costumes, etc.
FRIENDS OF BMS
We are exceptionally grateful of all support the society receives from keen supporters. The support provides the society with much more opportunities for us to host shows for our local community.
All of our valued Friends make an annual voluntary donation to the society and in return we invite them to join in numerous social events and have their name printed in all show programmes.
We are continually grateful for their support and if you would like to find out more about becoming a Friend of the Society, please email us at email@example.com
