About Us

From our earliest beginning as a small, localised group of enthusiastic singers from a Claughton church (see history page), we have evolved into a thriving, modern society of dedicated playing and non-playing members, who range in both age and experience. We have members who have been ‘treading the boards’ for years and those for whom BOST is their first foray into musical theatre. We employ a professional director, musical director and choreographer, and encourage all our members to develop their talents. In particular, we take great satisfaction in seeing our young singers develop into confident all-round performers.

Our non-acting members keep the Society and productions running smoothly. These invaluable members form the teams which take responsibility for organising the many necessary facets of successful show production – such as ticket-booking, wardrobe, props, stage management, general administration, etc, and ensuring that the playing members are able to perform on stage.

The society meets each week at our headquarters Alexander Hall in Birkenhead, Wirral, where we organise and rehearse our various concerts and the musicals we stage at The Liverpool Empire Theatre and other theatres in the region.

Our aim is always to bring great musicals to a premier theatre at an affordable price. It is rewarding to find that these shows are highly acclaimed by local and regional press and radio critics alike.

During the festive season we present our Fanfare For Christmas concert to which we invite a prize-winning silver band from the Northwest of England as guest artistes. A firm favourite with our audiences, these Yule-tide extravaganzas include a mix of traditional, modern and humorous festive pieces.

BOST also has a Concert Party group who tailor and perform individual concerts for charities’ fund-raising events and for other organisations, at their request.

Always looking to the future, we are constantly seeking new ideas, new events, and, indeed, new members – building on our long-established tradition and aiming to remain at the pinnacle of musical theatre entertainment in the North West.
