Local Musical Group Nominated For Top AwardPosted on 29 May 2013, 16:26
BOS Musical Theatre Group's members were thrilled to hear their locally acclaimed production of 'Calamity Jane' has been nominated for a top national award.
The prestigious National Operatic & Dramatic Association East Midlands Awards have been announced after hundreds of amateur productions were seen by NODA adjudicators throughout the region during the course of the year.
The official show report from the adjudicator for 'Calamity Jane' said: "I really appreciated her amazing performance as she sang and danced her way through this production. The standing ovations and curtain calls at the end of this show were indeed well deserved." The group, which was formerly known as Boston Operatic Society, will now face stiff competition from two other theatre groups in the region in an attempt to win the title for its April 2012 staging of 'Calamity Jane' at Blackfriars Theatre.
Stuart Bull, Chairman of BOSMTG, said: "Putting on two theatre shows every year using talented local people is always a tough but very rewarding experience. To receive this nomination is proof that what we do, we do well. We were fortunate to win the award in 2010 and directors, Lesley Smith and John Sabberton, and choreographer Abi Kingsley-Parker are hopeful of repeating our previous success."
BOSMTG members are excited about the news and are looking forward to June 2nd, when winners will be announced and awards presented at the NODA East Midlands annual awards dinner in Loughborough.
For anybody interested in joining the group, there will be auditions for the next production 'The King and I' . The show was a London and Broadway hit and a 1956 film for which Yul Brynner won an Academy Award.
