Sunset Boulevard

Posted on 07 Nov 2019, 12:40

The Most Challenging of Musicals.

The famous Andrew Lloyd Webber Musical Sunset Boulevard, will be staged by BOS Musical Theatre Group, at Blackfriars Arts Centre in Boston, from November 17th to 23rd (matinee on Sunday November 17th) . This is one of the most challenging of musicals available for amateur groups and is rarely done outside of the West End. It features a rich, luscious musical score, reflecting the Hollywood setting of the action as it deals with the descent of fading silent-movie star Norma Desmond. Well-known local singers Trevor Fenton, Sharon Sinnott and Rob Callaby are playing principal roles, and are joined by the talented Bronte White playing her first romantic lead with the group.


BOS Musical Theatre group (formerly Boston Operatic Society) has a long and enviable

reputation of award-winning shows such as Into the Woods, Annie, The Sound of Music,

and Jesus Christ Superstar, also having huge success with The Full Monty and 9 to 5. Former

Director of Music at the Stump Marc Murray is in charge of the 13 piece orchestra for this

show, and the experienced Stuart Bull is director. Marc travels from Greater Manchester

twice per week to rehearse with the group, as he enjoys working with such talented

individuals, all of whom give up their time for free.


BOS MTG are hoping that this show will help to save the group and enable them to put on

future productions, as they lost several thousand pounds due to the cancellation of their

last production, Return to the Forbidden Planet earlier this year. This could be a crunch

show for them as poor sales again will threaten their survival. Chairperson Helen Graves

said “We have so many gifted people working hard to put on spectacular shows, and I feel it

would be a great shame if BOS MTG were to go the way of many other societies in these

difficult times. It would be a huge loss for the town”.
