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 of Trial by Jury & HMS Pinafore they gave us. The voices were simply superb! This year we will present the beautiful PRINCESS IDA It will be presented in the Royal Hall, Harrogate on Tuesday 18th August at 7:30.
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.
As a result of this the production team will cast the show including chorus by the first week of March so that everyone then has enough time to make their accommodation arrangements. The completed cast will be emailed to everyone thereafter.
Therefore, it is vitally important that you get in touch with us as soon as possible if you want to take part – either as a principal or in the chorus – by the end of February.
