The Bradford Unversity Society of Operettas and Musicals (BUSOM) meet twice a week at 7pm on Tuesdays in the Activities Room and Thursdays in the Escape Bar, both of which are located in Student Central. We perform concerts of songs from the shows at both Christmas and the end of the academic year, with a fully staged show March. We also present a “Scratch”, or semi-staged show each year in November to induct new members into the society and a 24-Hour Show, usually in October. These productions provide ample opportunities for members to try their hand at all elements of theatre: directing, acting, tech, costume – the list goes on!
If anyone is interested in helping backstage, or with tech, props, build, publicity, fundraising, music or hair and makeup (or anything else you think would fill a niche)- the more the merrier – please get in touch via firstname.lastname@example.org and your name will be passed onto the right team.
“Moby Dick! The Musical”
12th – 14th March 2015 – New Bradford Playhouse, 7:30pm
“Never Work with Children or Animals”
Thursday 30th April 2015 – Escape Bar, 7:30pm
When not rehearsing for our own shows, the society often takes trips to see productions at Local Theatres.
With its combination of friendly meetings, fantastic performances and an emphasis on the social side of the society, it’s little surprise that many members have found BUSOM to be at the heart of their university experience.
Membership is £6 for Students and £10 for Non-Students
