BTC 2022 Update
The BTC Committee would like to wish all members of Bendigo Theatre Company a very merry Christmas and a happy new year. We know that everyone will be glad to move on from 2021 and we hope that 2022 is a joyful and happy year for everyone. With all the difficulties of the past eighteen months, we know people will be clamouring to get back into the stalls. We have a very exciting lineup of shows for 2022.
Our theatre season kicks off with the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical ‘Cats’ in January and we have extended the season with two extra performances. The opening night is January 16 and runs until January 22. The cast have been working incredibly hard over the last eighteen months to bring this iconic musical to life. They have navigated many difficulties on their road to the stage, we look forward to a wonderful show in the Girton Black Box theatre. Tickets are selling fast so get in quick. The production team and cast deserve no less than a sell-out crowd.
Beyond Reasonable Doubt
This play written by Geoffrey Archer is a classic courtroom drama that will have you on the edge of your seat until the final scenes and the ending is revealed. Boasting a very capable cast, a spectacular set and the wonderful ambience of the BTC Arts shed theatre this is one not to miss. Tickets are on sale and with eight performances they will go quickly. A great night’s entertainment at the BTC Arts Shed.
Yes, this season of TENX10 is on again and we welcome Stania Tresize to the role of Production Manager for this annual event. We remind budding writers that the cut off for submitting plays is coming up very soon and we would encourage everyone to consider writing one of these ten-minute plays. There is no theme so let your imagination run wild and get the entry in to BTC by the December 31. We will also be looking for Directors and Actors for these plays in the new year so keep an eye on the BTC Facebook page and emails for news of this.
2022 Major Musical
Apart from the three shows already mentioned it is our great pleasure to announce the major musical for 2022: BTC and Tribe will be joining forces to perform Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. This well-loved musical is sure to be a great crowd pleaser and this is the first time it will be produced in regional Victoria. It toured Australia recently in 2017 and our show will feature all the music you loved in the professional production. We will be calling for members of the production team for Charlie and the Chocolate Factory in the new year with auditions planned for early March.
2022 Tribe Play
In September of 2022, Tribe will be performing the clever and inventive play of Puffs. For seven years, a certain boy wizard went to a certain Wizard School and conquered a dark evil threatening the magical world as he knew it. However, this is not his story. This is the story of the Puffs… who happened to be there too. The ‘hangers-on’ and ‘were-also-theres’ populate this hilarious romp through the wizarding world. A story for anyone who has never been destined to save the world, Puffs will be performing at the Capital Theatre in September 2022.
More information about tickets and being involved in these two incredible productions will be available in the new year. Keep an eye on Facebook, our Website and your Email Inbox to ensure you don’t miss anything.
Thank you so much to everyone who has been performed, built, ushered, sold programs, or otherwise helped out this year, make sure you keep your eyes open for other exciting opportunities to be involved in the new year.
Until then, stay safe and enjoy the holiday season.
We can’t wait to see you all in the new year.
