Have you ever watched a stage show and thought "I wish I could do that ..."? Well, maybe you can! Amateur theatre is a great way to get involved with the performing arts.
Bury St Edmunds Amateur Operatic and Dramatic Society is always looking for aspiring actors, singers and dancers of all ages, so why not pop along to one of our rehearsals, have a cup of coffee and a chat, and let us persuade you to take up one of the most rewarding of hobbies a person can have?
Or join our talent backstage! We are looking for Stage Crew/Managers, Front of House, Props & Costumes & Production Managers. These roles are essential and can seem quite scary if you haven't done them before, however we have members who are always willing to help you. If you would be interested in taking on one of these roles (or shadowing someone to gain amazing experience) we would love to hear from you.
We usually rehearse at Trinity Methodist Church Hall, Looms Lane, Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk on a Tuesday evening. Some rehearsals take place at Brookes Cambridge (Formerly Cherry Trees Preparatory and Montessori School, Flempton Road, Risby, Suffolk). Our Facebook page is updated regularly so you can message us on facebook (www.facebook.com/BSEAODS/) or fill in details below for further information.
