Rehearsals

1. When are rehearsals? Chorus rehearsals are normally held on Monday evening, and Principal part and dance rehearsals normally are held on Wednesday evening. Approaching a show, there may be a small number of additional rehearsals called on Sunday afternoons.

 

2. Where are rehearsals held? Rehearsals are held at the Abercorn Primary School on the Newry Road in Banbridge. Click here for map and directions.

 

3. How are rehearsals structured?  Typically rehearsals will begin with Chorus in singing, led by our Musical Director, and dancing, led by our Director or Choreographer. Principals will concentrate on their acting and singing and will rehearse with Chorus for the Chorus numbers they are involved in.   Material is then pieced together gradually until whole runs of the show are used to tidy and tighten the production, ready for the theatre! The production week is always a busy and exciting time. Performers will be expected to attend a band call, a technical and dress rehearsal as well as taking part in microphone checks where relevant. 

Performance

1. How often does the company produce performance work? Traditionally, Banbridge Musical Society performs two large productions each year, a pantomime in the Winter and a more traditional West End/Broadway production in the Spring. However, we also boast an extensive concert programme, which we perform at private events.
