Welcome to BEES, we hope you like what you find and decide to join us.
BEES came about in 1994, when a group of like-minded people got together with the sole purpose of entertaining.
We usually stage at least one musical production each year, often in October and sometimes another earlier in the year for just the Junior members.
Our next productions are a joint venture between the Adult and Junior members - in 2022 we will be performing Shrek the Musical and in 2023 The Wind in the Willows
Our rehearsals are held on a Sunday, fortnightly and usually at our “home” theatre, The Princess, in Burnham on Sea (we do weekly and some weeknights closer to a performance)
We are pleased to welcome people of all ages and abilities; we do not hold formal auditions or ask for any prior experience just enthusiasm and hard work!!!!
Our emphasis at BEES is work hard and enjoy what we do, we do not sit exams or teach and all our production team are volunteers.

Bumbles - £30 per year
