SUPER TROUPERS (Amateur Theatre in Bolton, 2018-19)
The Gallery at St. George’s House is happy to welcome the latest colourful exhibition by BOLTON DOCUMENTARY PHOTOGRAPHY.
For decades now, Bolton has boasted one of the liveliest amateur theatre communities in Britain, a yearlong showcase for actors young and old, from stage-struck budding talents to mature established performers, along with some superb sets, stage-lighting and costumes.
This photography exhibition presents a vivid picture of a year in the life of these local theatre groups, (all members of BATS, Bolton Amateur Theatre Society). The exhibition focuses on their dress rehearsals, capturing the fun and dedication they bring to their activities.
The BATS annual programme spans a wide theatrical range, encompassing drama (Arthur Miller, Noel Coward, Tennessee Williams, Alan Bennett), pantomime (Dick Whittington, Aladdin), musicals (Oliver, The Desert Song, Cats, Grease, The Pirates of Penzance), along with variety shows, choir recitals and orchestral concerts. It continues to be one of the sparkling highlights of Bolton’s annual calendar of entertainment and culture.
BOLTON DOCUMENTARY PHOTOGRAPHY are a voluntary community arts group, who since 1995 have been creating photography exhibitions focusing on many varied aspects of life in Bolton (including Gypsies and Travellers, Homelessness, Behind the Scenes in the Octagon’s 50th Year, and many more).
The exhibition opens to the public on 17 April 2019. It is free to enter and open Monday – Friday, 9-5pm. Ends 28 June 2019.
Exhibition funded by BOLTON OPERATIC SOCIETY TRUST (The Bolton Guild of Help) and supported by BOLTON AMATEUR THEATRE SOCIETY.
