Banbridge Musical Society celebrated it’s 70th birthday in 2013.
The Society was formed as the Banbridge Choral Society in 1943 when we performed many choral pieces as well as Gilbert and Sullivan operettas.
In the 1970s the move to musical theatre provided a broader range of shows and pantomimes to be performed, as well as an amendment to our name.
The Society stages two productions annually (a pantomime in winter as well as a “musical” production in the spring) and delivers 16 high quality and professional performances each year. Shows are very successful in terms of support from the local community (at least 5,000 people each year pay to see our shows) and there are around 50 adult and 100 children / teenage cast members at any given time.
All the time and input given by members is on a voluntary basis.
Over the years the Society has given the opportunity to hundreds of local children, adults and teenagers to sing and act on the stage. This has inspired many budding thespians who have gone on to greater heights e.g. Tony Finnegan is now a professional actor/director and Niall Wilkinson and Tanya Shields are both professional actors.
