Our Spring 2018 production of Arthur Miller's witch hunt classic 'The Crucible' is now in rehearsal and is already looking very impressive.

In this  post-truth era of Trump, fake news, a resurgence of white supremacist culture and religious fundamentalism , as well as recent news stories of sexual allegations, Miller’s allegory continues to reflect the machinations of society and political culture and is as relevant today as it was 65 years ago.

With a high calibre cast and strong production values, this production of The Crucible is a must for your 2018 theatre diary.

We had an amazing response to our Autumn musical 'All Shook Up'. Thanks to all of you who came, enjoyed and took the time to hang around in the bar post show to let us know as well as spreading the word on social media!
Both cast and crew had a fab, fun filled show week, preceded by 5 months of equally fab and fun filled rehearsals, and the usual post show blues were felt more acutley than ever. 'All Shook Up' also proved to be a winner financially as well, as the production ended up in the black!
The production also received a very complimentary and enthusiastic review from our NODA rep.
As we enter 2018, the pre-production elves are busy getting ready for our Autumn production of 'Chess' and we're looking forward to welcoming both new and familiar faces to the workshops & auditions  not to mention once again working with some of the best creatives around.

CHESS AUDITIONS ANNOUNCED
Workshops
23rd & 25th April 2018
Auditions
5th & 6th May 2018
 

2018 will round off with the Tim Rice, Benny Andersonn & Bjorn Ulvaeus musical CHESS. Depicting a politically driven, Cold-War era chess tournament, the show tells the story of two Grandmasters, one American the other Russian and the woman who manages one and falls in love with the other.
David Rhys - Director & Choreographer of 2016's NODA award winning EVITA  reprises these roles whilst Graham Thomson makes a welcome return to the Musical Director's chair. A favourite of both, CHESS will undoubtedly be another BTC show that many of you will want to be a part of. We have already had a great deal of interest in this production. Make sure you register your interest.
