Big Worle Showbiz
Big Worle Showbiz began in September 2013 and is going from strength to strength. With two concert performances downs and a 3rd planned. Big Worle Showbiz can be hailed a huge success. Anybody with a love of singing can join. Auditions are not necessary. This is about having fun and making friends!
Big Worle Showbiz Choir
The Big Worle Showbiz Choir has been operating since September 2013 with a membership of over 100 and an average attendance of 60 members. The Choir is a community choir and membership is based solely upon a desire to take part and sing. Auditions are not required to join the choir. There is no charge, a voluntary contribution of 50p is asked to go towards tea, coffee and biscuits which are served during the break.
As the name suggests our repertoire is based upon songs from the major stage shows such as Les Miserables. We currently have seven major songs, including “I Dreamed a Dream”, “One”, “The Rhythm of Life” and several smaller pieces.
Big Worle Showbiz Choir meets weekly at Becket Primary School in Tavistock Road on Thursdays at 7.30pm - 9:30pm.
The Choir is currently in need of male members, particularly tenors. The Choir is run by a small committee and is headed by well known local musicians Bob Gibbons and Bill Stagg. Bob is our Musical Director and Bill is our accompanist. Our first concert was held at Priory School on 18 January 2014.
Big Worle Showbiz Technicians
We are currently working with a Weston Company and Unltd which is a charity dedicated to supporting social entrepreneurs. The objective is to train a number of local people in the Big Worle area to provide and operate lighting and sound systems to support the other sections of Big Worle Showbiz.
This training will also provide employment opportunities. We hope to start the training programme in the near future.
