BODS — Bishopshalt Operatic and Dramatic Society

Our show for 2021 was 9 to 5 The Musical, with music and lyrics by Dolly Parton. Shows were performed on Thurs 2nd, Fri 3rd and Sat 4th of December.

The hilarious story of friendship and revenge where three female co-workers concoct a plan to get even with their boss was a resounding success.  Our fantastic cast, crew and staff pulled together an amazing show despite many setbacks and Covid's best efforts.

Take look at the show's official photographs in the performance gallery, this year taken by our photography students Andreea and Silvia, who did a fantastic job. You can also read our NODA reviews here:     NODA 1      NODA 2

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.
