Next show:
Jekyll and Hyde


MEMBER of National Operatic and Dramatic Association

Bexhill Light Operatic and Dramatic Society (BLODS)


Jekyll & Hyde rehearsals are settling into a good stride now. We have already been through majority of half the first act, 3 weeks in! The cast are working really hard to make this work. Without consciously making the effort, the show is turning into a concert with scenery! This we all see as an excellent opportunity for us to bring something different to the theatre and perhaps to what BLODS have done before. The interesting part is that the music tells such a good story and our actors are bringing the characters alive with such grace and gusto, it will be a musical joy to see for any theatre lover. The ensemble songs 'Facade', 'Murder, Murder' will be a joy to watch!


Everyone from the chorus to people working behind the scenes are trying to make this production a fun experience for anyone that comes to watch. What is so nice to see, are the brand new members and faces that we have got working in the cast. Great to see new people enjoying their first BLODS experience having just joined the society, we are having a nice time with everyone working to make this show...our show motto is 'Teamwork makes the dream work' and this is one dedicated team!

So far...SO good!

In other news, We are very pleased to announce that we are proudly donating a large number of FREE tickets to local charitable organisations to come and see our show for the first night. This will be giving people a chance to come and see a production that they wouldn't normally have the option too.

We are also giving away 5 PAIRS OF FREE TICKETS which will be able to be won, in our upcoming competitions on social media! The winners to be picked at random, so keep your eyes peeled!

Tickets are on sale now. They are selling well, but we need to sell more...I urge you to book in advance for this one! Remember you get a group discount for 10 or more....


I will update you all in a couple of weeks of our progress! go buy some tickets!!!
The production team.

Bexhill Light Operatic and Dramatic Society (BLODS) was originally known as Bexhill Amateur Operatic Society. Our very first production was The Mikado in 1933. The first performance at the new De La Warr Pavilion was ‘Princess Ida’ in 1936 and productions continued there until the Second World War brought shows to a halt. The BLODS re-appeared at the Pavilion in 1946 with ‘Iolanthe’ and continued with one show per year until 1970 when two shows became the norm. Since 1973 the average attendance at the De La Warr for each show has been over 3000. The BLODS have always endeavoured to present a high standard of musical never shirking the challenge of new shows such as ‘Jesus Christ Superstar’, ‘Copacabana’ and a panto, Dick Whittington.
