BOADS

Brixham, Devon

BOADS was originally a small group of friends under the guise of ‘The Orange Bubbles’ but wanted to expand their horizons and so changed their name to attract a wider membership and audience. Their first production was of \‘Pearl the Fishermaiden’ and Ralph Bartlett was one of the original founding members of the group. The group quickly established itself as an essential part of the community and brought lots of pleasure to Brixham and its inhabitants. The first decade comprised mainly of Gilbert and Sullivan productions but they then branched out to lesser-known works to broaden the horizons of the players and audience members.
The group was well known for their lavish scenery that was designed by Jeffrey Snelson (see the Past Shows section for photos of some of his work). There was one occurrence during the 1951 production of ‘Chu Chin Chow’ when two gentlemen in the audience actually wagered a bet in regards to being able to walk up the pathway on the backdrop or not. Jeffrey was a professional ex-member of the ‘D’oyly Carte Opera Company’ and instilled his professionalism into BOADS. Jeffrey stayed with the society until 1963, ‘The Pyjama Game’ being his final production.
The Society was the first in the South West to produce a number of shows including Oklahoma (1955), Carousel (1958), South Pacific (1961) and Paint Your Wagon (1972).
Over the years we have had a number of outstanding Musical Directors such as George Dolton, Douglas Hutchings, Dennis Iles, Gerry Vaughan Williams, David Warwick and not forgetting our current man Carl Smith.

Colyton

Entertaining the community, Colyton Theatre Group was formed in 1975 and has been going strong ever since. The Constitution states that ‘the aim of the Group shall be to produce plays, etc. for the entertainment and education of the public and to foster interest and ability in the performing arts’. That might be the case but it does sound a little serious and formal. We like to think that, while pursuing these worthy aims, we also provide an opportunity for people to have fun, to get together with old friends and make new ones. We want people to come along and share their skills and perhaps to discover skills they did not know they had. Our aim is to involve and entertain the community.
We present at least one play a year and pantomimes are always popular. There is a Summer School for young people where they learn drama skills and create a performance. We frequently take part in the Exmouth Festival, always come up with an entertainment for Carnival Week and join in the Carnival Procession. For those who enjoy taking part in plays without becoming involved in a stage performance, we have the Play Reading Group.
There are so many ways you could become involved: as actors, directors, front of house, stage managers, wardrobe assistants, prompts or with computing and advertising skills. The more members we have, the more we can offer and it is a good way to meet new friends. If you prefer, just come along and enjoy our productions; you will be very welcome and we look forward to meeting you.
