A selection of critics’ comments about some of our recent productions…

 

“When the local evening paper heads its review ‘Everything Glows’ you can expect a splendid show from BOST. And so it proved! The dancing throughout was thrilling…and the large chorus had obviously worked hard at their well drilled routines to add to the spectacle. … With an excellent orchestra under the direction of Trisha Gaskell, it was guaranteed the audience would go out with a smile and a song.” NODA Northwest Magazine, Summer 2005

Anything Goes (2005) – NODA

“The production is an impressive all-but professional show, with some classy singers, good acting and the most delightful set of Royal moppets west of Siam.” Liverpool Echo

The King and I (2004) – Liverpool Echo

“Above all, it is a musical to be enjoyed and the society has pulled out all the stops in this production, directed by the ever reliable Elsie Kelly. … Wonderful costumes, a huge cast, amazing acrobats and even an eye-popping Chinese dragon dance, all add to the fun and excitement of the production. … The set changes are smoothly done and the whole production seems to roll along on castors. …as well as singing, they all act convincingly, enough to give this reviewer a misty eye at the sad moments, and a laugh at the funny ones. It is sheer bliss.” Daily Post, 30/04/2004

The King and I (2004) – Daily Post
