Have you heard? 2017 panto started today!

Today (Sunday 31st July) saw the start of our 2017 panto - Jack and the Beanstalk.

Actually, the production team started back in April with music meetings and other production planning! But today was the first time we all got together as a group, started collecting scripts and started thinking about the dreaded auditions again!

Today was out annual Family Cricket and Rounders match - where we all meet up at Shobnall Recreation ground in Burton, pray for good weather, play cricket and have a picnic. It was a great day - sorry no photos (yet) as we were all too busy trying to be sporty. Some succeeded. Some less so.

But - as ever - it was a great family day for the BASE families.

Here are some key dates for the start of Jack and Beanstalk. More information on general membership can be found here. A couple of key points though:

  1. If you want to audition (for principal or chorus/dancer) you have to be a fully paid up member.
  2. If you are an on stage cast member - then you need to make every effort to attend all rehearsals (every Wednesday evening, 7:30-9:30pm from Weds 7th Sept until show week and after christmas, every Sunday afternoon as well - 2pm - 6pm).
