WOULD YOU LIKE TO JOIN IN?
The interest in last year’s “Senior Citizens” group, Bus Pass Opera was tremendous and of course everybody was delighted when the company came first in the International Festival Competition! The combined ages of those on the Royal Hall stage exceeded 2500 years and what a fantastic performance they gave us. The voices were simply superb! This year we will present HMS PINAFORE in the Buxton Opera House, on Monday 7th August at 7:30. Bus Pass Opera is a firm favourite at the Festival and great fun too. Alan Borthwick will direct, and David Lyle is the musical director once again.
HOW TO APPLY
The concept of Bus Pass Opera was to give “retired” thespians the opportunity to come out of retirement and demonstrate their year’s of experience. We don’t want to start auditioning, but our audience expect that standards will continue to rise.
Demand for places in Buss Pass Opera has grown year on year since 2015. We are now at the point of having too many applicants for the spaces available and therefore we need to put a cap on the number of choristers we can accept for safety reasons. We’ve also been advised by our insurers that we cannot accept anyone aged 90 or above.
