Patrons Newsletter

November 2016

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU to all Patrons and their friends who have supported us throughout the whole of 2016.

A Patron’s donation form can be found at the bottom of the page and we hope that you will continue to support us.

We look forward to 2017 and another successful year with our next show Priscilla Queen of the Desert.


Due to unforeseen circumstances, I have been unable to hold a Coffee Morning this November. I will definitely be holding the usual March one where we will tell you all about the show Priscilla Queen of the Desert and how this it is progressing.


Tuesday 18 July 2017 to Saturday 22 July 2017

This is an action-packed musical, full of fun and well known songs. It will have your feet tapping from the minute you arrive in the theatre.

Based in Australia the musical tells the story of two drag queens and a transgender woman, who contract to perform a drag show at a resort in Alice Springs, a small town in the remote Australian desert. As they head west from Sydney aboard their lavender bus, Priscilla, and the three friends come to the forefront of a comedy of errors, encountering a number of strange characters, as well as incidents of homophobia, while widening comfort zones and finding new horizons.

It is funny, lively, colourful and action-packed from beginning to end. Certainly, a show ‘not to be missed’.


This was a huge success and exceeded all our expectations. The amount of energy and vitality our members showed left the audiences shouting for more, especially in the chorus numbers. The skipping sequence was a very exciting number which required a high degree of skill. The two dogs were very popular with our younger audiences and were well behaved enjoying their stardom.

Sarah Bayliss who played the Lead character Elle Woods has since been accepted for The London School of Musical Theatre.

Summer Fete

The BBLOC Garden Fete was held this year on Saturday 6 August 2016 at Cavendish Road, Bournemouth. We had a record number of family and friends who came along to enjoy fun and games and a dip in the pool.

Pimms was the drink of the afternoon along with hot dogs, teas and coffees.
