Throughout the year students have been given tasks to compose music to different stimuli including composing for a film clip, composing music to represent different characters, as well as selecting and performing songs for the film soundtrack.
The National Production Company presents The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged). This critically acclaimed play is an irreverent, fast-paced romp through the Bard’s 37 plays! Join these madcap performers in tights as they weave their way through all of Shakespeare’s Comedies, Histories and Tragedies in one wild ride that will leave you breathless and helpless with laughter.
NOTICE! The National Production Company take no responsibility for any loss of blood pressure, brain cells or partners during the course of the proceedings. This is a high paced action packed thrill ride and we ask that; should the intense hurtling speed of the Shakespearean canon and our majestic performances cause you to vomit and burst into flames, please refrain from screaming too loudly so as not to affect the enjoyment of those around you. May the Bard be with you.

With all kids out of the house Uncle Ben plans a secret night in with a special lady; he puts on a bit of Marvin Gaye and prepares for what he thinks is going to be a wonderful night. But with his kids returning home unexpectedly and a surprise visit from the police it’s not long before Uncle Ben’s fire is put out by some shocking news leading to a huge family secret being uncovered.
It’s 2018 and Uncle Ben is back with a night of quality entertainment. Since 2012 we have seen this family battle with infidelity, domestic violence, substance abuse and the issue of absent parents; but somehow they manage to keep it all together and still look on the bright side. This year Conway Productions are taking the family on a new journey and revealing some dark secrets that Uncle Ben and Auntie Maggie have been hiding for years. We’ll see ups, downs, laughter and tears but will this family feud be the straw that breaks the camel’s back?
This showcase will feature displays and performances from Year 10 students across all pathways, created alongside industry professionals in their first week at BOA. Due to the capacity of the theatre, we have to limit the tickets to two per student and these will be on a first-come-first-served basis.
Following sell out Edinburgh Fringe runs in 2015 and 2016 plus a sell out UK tour, award winning* comedian George Egg (the ‘Anarchist Cook’) returns with a brand new show demonstrating more live cooking and laugh-out-loud comedy.
In ‘DIY Chef' George‘s doctor has told him he needs to rethink his culinary habits and as a result his family have banned him from using the kitchen. They’ve banished him to the shed. But George simply has to keep cooking and his unstoppable urge to be creative means inventive solutions and some seriously tasty food.
It’s funny, inspiring and absurd in equal measure, a cross-genre show falling somewhere between a stand-up comedy set and an illustrated lecture. Expect power tools, gardening equipment and office supplies to be abused and re-purposed. Expect lots of laughs. Expect to learn something new. And you get to taste the food at the end.
