Sing-a-Long Sound Of Music Fri 3 October, 2014

Posted by Steve on September 16, 2014

All proceeds go to the Bolton Little Theatre Next Generation Building Appeal

Sing a-long Sound of Music is your chance to have the best fun you`ll ever have in your whole life! Seriously.

You'll have an opportunity to climb every mountain with several other assorted Nuns, Von Trapp family members and Julie Andrews look-a-likes. Costumes are not compulsory but highly desirable as there are prizes up for grabs. You can be as inventive as you like. It’s all part of the fun. And remember, you can never have too many wimples.

The hills will be alive as the comperes start proceedings by warming up your voices before judging the fancy dress competition. You are then taken through the contents of your special Sound of Music “goody bag” given out to all audience members. Please note: Edelweiss not included. Finally, you will be offered suggestions on the most appropriate points in the film to heckle the on screen action such as booing the Countess or cheering the Von Trapp family when they escape.

When the film starts, the audience takes over and just about anything can happen as you sing and shout your hearts out to this much loved classic film.

So, don't be one of the lonely goatheard. No, so long, farewell. Make this show one of your favourite things - ever!

The fun begins at BLT 7.30pm.

A message from Elizabeth Tatman, BLT chair "We are very close to raising the £85,000 necessary to secure our Hanover Street home of over 80 years for future generations. With other planned events in the autumn the theatre is on course to reach its appeal fund target before the end of the year. We have had a fantastic response to our appeal and your support is appreciated by all. Thank you."

BLT recognised at 2014 BATS Awards

Posted by Steve on September 01, 2014

BLT picked up three awards at this year's Bolton Amateur Theatre Society (BATS) awards, hosted by the Bolton News at the Last Drop Village last Friday evening.

There were lots of posh frocks and smart suits evident as amateur groups from all over Bolton got together to celebrate the 2013 - 2014 season of productions.

BLT chair Elizabeth Tatman received a very special accolade of the Michael Rodgers award, Steve Stubbs scooped best actor in a drama for his portrayal of Styler in the pyschological thriller Mind Game and the Ray Cooney farce Out of Order received best set and costume design.

The Octagon Theatre's artistic director and BATS patron, David Thacker and society chairman Paul Cohen handed out the awards on the night.

Many congratulations to all Bolton amateur groups and individuals - actors, back stage crews, designers, technical teams, front of house - who were nominated or award winners across 14 categories and that once again showed the depth of theatrical talent in Bolton
