New member auditions


If you’ve ever fancied joining our award-winning musical theatre society, then now is your chance!

We are holding open auditions for new members on Sunday 18th July at 2pm.

Auditionees will need to perform one song (preferably from a musical) to the panel. An accompanist will be available, so please bring the relevant sheet music. Alternatively, you can sing to a backing track (by connecting your phone to our speaker).

The auditions will be conducted at BOST HQ (24a Clifton Road, Birkenhead) in a socially distanced way, complying with Government Covid protocols. Applicants should be aged 18+.

New members who are successful in their audition will also need to have great enthusiasm and commitment. Rehearsals are held every Thursday evening and the six Sundays preceding a production.

Our next major production will be ‘The Magic of Christmas Musicals’ – a concert showcasing festive songs from favourite stage and screen musicals including ‘A Christmas Carol’, ‘Frozen’, ‘Elf’, ‘White Christmas’ and many more. This will be performed in December (more details will be announced shortly!)

If you would like to attend these new member auditions, please email with your full name and phone number, and you will be added to the attendance list.
