BODS

BODS — Bishopshalt Operatic and Dramatic Society

Our show for 2022 is........

 Little Shop of Horrors

 

Little Shop of Horrors is a sci-fi horror musical with an electrifying 1960s pop/rock score by Alan Menken and Howard Ashman.

Seymour Krelborn is a meek and dejected assistant at a floral shop who happens upon a strange plant, which he affectionately names “Audrey II” after his crush at the shop. Little does he know that this strange and unusual plant will develop a soulful R&B voice and an unquenchable thirst for human blood.  As Audrey II grows bigger and meaner, the carnivorous plant promises limitless fame and fortune to Seymour, as long as he continues providing a fresh supply...

What is BODS?

As BODS, we hold one show annually which consists primarily of our upper school students. This show takes place in early December each year.  Details, including photographs, of past shows can be seen under the show headings and in the BODS Photo Gallery along with an independent report from our National Operatic and Dramatic Association (NODA) representative who review our shows and the performance. 

Junior BODS has been running for the last few years and is for our younger KS3 students.  Auditions are held at the end of the Spring term with performances taking place in July.
