All Together Now!

BATS Next Gen and Limelight, the youth wing of Basingstoke Amateur Operatic Society (BAOS) have combined to perform a show that is being featured globally over one special weekend.  This marks a celebration of the return to live theatre by both societies and the shows aim to provide a period of joy and music and celebrate what has been missing due to lockdown and Covid-19.

Featuring songs from well-known classical musicals, such as ‘Annie’, ‘Oliver!’ and ‘Guys and Dolls’ as well as new favourites including ‘Beauty and the Beast’, ‘Little Women’ and ‘Waitress’, the shows have been arranged in conjunction with MTI (Musical Theatre International) from their list of musicals.

Performances will take place on Saturday 13th November at 4pm and Sunday 14th November at 1:30pm.  The venue is Everest College, Oxford Way, Basingstoke RG21 9UP.

Tickets are now on sale priced at £12.50 plus booking fee.
