The Burton Musical Theatre Company

Voluntary Arts Week Open Evening – 18th May

BVoluntary Arts Weekurton Musical Theatre Company invite you to an event to celebrate voluntary arts week.

Voluntary Arts Week (15th to 24th May 2015) is a celebration of amateur creative activity across the UK. It is an opportunity for anyone to go along and see what goes on during a normal rehearsal at the ‘Rehearsal Open Evening’ to be held on Monday 18th May from 7.30 pm. It will provide an insight into how this amateur theatre group gets ready for performances and all of the hard work that is put into a show. Some people may never have experienced a rehearsal setting before so this will help any prospective members to see what they do. Being involved in this type of activity is tremendous fun and very fulfilling.

Anybody coming along will also be able to see how and where scenery is constructed because enjoying the hobby of amateur arts isn’t just about performing. If you have a talent for woodwork, painting or general DIY the Company is always on the look out for assistance.

BMTC are currently rehearsing for both their upcoming concerts in the Burton Brewhouse Arts Venue on the 29th May and 5th June and also the musical comedy ‘The Producers’ to be performed in October 2015.

The Open Evening will be held at the Company’s rehearsal headquarters in Ferry Street, Stapenhill.  Although they are happy for people to just turn up it would be very useful to have an idea of numbers due to space limitations when rehearsals are in progress. If you would like to be part of the evening please telephone 01283 547750/07975 562191 for further information or use the ‘Contact Us’ tab and register by email.
